Liverpool overcame a first leg deficit to power past Villarreal 3-0 (3-1 on aggregate) at Anfield and into the Europa League final.
The La Liga side were reduced to ten men shortly afterwards, when Victor Ruiz was shown a second yellow card, before Adam Lallana put a healthy gloss on the scoreline with the third.
A banner on the Kop simply reads ‘European Elite’, and while this competition may not be where a club of Liverpool’s history are used to playing, it offers a path back to the big time with a win in Basle later this month – in addition to a trophy.
The opponents there will be Sevilla who defeated Shakhtar by 3-1 (5-3 on aggregate)
