Story by The Associated Press

MADRID (AP) — The Spanish town of Villarreal could face their last Champions League night in a while if they don’t pull off another upset on Tuesday against Liverpool.

The lowly club ousted Juventus and Bayern Munich en route to a surprise semi-final. But if he can’t reverse a 2-0 first-leg loss to the English club, recent history shows he may not get another chance to play in the competition anytime soon.

Villarreal are only seventh in the Spanish league, nine points from the last place in European competition with four rounds to go.

The team’s chances of qualifying for the Spanish league were dented on Saturday by losing to penultimate place Alavés, when manager Unai Emery had to rest some of his regular starters ahead of the game against Liverpool .

This means that only the Champions League title is likely to see the club return to Europe’s top club competition next season.

And coming back after that may not be easy either, given Villarreal’s recent record.

Based in a town of 50,000 people in southern Spain, Villarreal had not played in the Champions League since the 2011-12 season. Before that, he only qualified for the tournament in 2005-06 and 2008-09. This is his third appearance in the knockout stage, and the first since reaching the quarter-finals in 2009. He reached the semi-finals in 2006.

“We are going through a historic moment. Our people are very proud,” Emery said Monday. “We played well at home. Hopefully in front of our fans we will have our best performance and progress.

Villarreal haven’t lost a home game in more than five months, since a Spanish league loss to Barcelona last November.

Villarreal fans are planning a big party to try and help Villarreal pull off an unlikely comeback. Mosaics will be displayed inside the La Cerámica stadium and a fan corridor will host the team bus transporting the team from the training center to the stadium.

Both of Villarreal’s eliminations in the knockout stage came against an English club – Arsenal.

Villarreal qualified for the Champions League this season by winning the second-tier Europa League for their first significant title.

Even returning to the Europa League or Europa Conference League can be difficult for Emery’s side as they sit four points behind sixth-placed Real Sociedad and five points behind fifth-placed Real Betis.

Liverpool are looking to reach their third Champions League final in five seasons. The last time they were knocked out in the round of 16 after winning the first leg was in the 2001-02 quarter-finals against Bayer Leverkusen.

The English club have won all five away matches they have played in the Champions League this season, including against Inter Milan in the round of 16 and Benfica in the quarter-finals.

It remains unclear if Emery will be able to count on some key players due to injuries, including veteran defender Raúl Albiol and forwards Gerard Moreno and Arnaut Danjuma.

Moreno missed the first leg with a muscle problem, while Albiol is nursing a blow. In the first leg against Liverpool, the defender became the oldest Spaniard to play in a Champions League semi-final at 36.

Midfielder Yéremy Pino is out with a muscle problem.

Emery, a strong performer in the Europa League, is enjoying his best ever Champions League campaign having never progressed past the knockout stages in his previous attempts.

“We are very motivated to play a Champions League semi-final on home soil,” Emery said. “We want to enjoy this moment with our fans.”
