Liverpool booked a Champions League semifinal showdown against Villarreal as the quadruple chasers survived a late collapse in Wednesday’s 3-3 draw against Benfica.

Jurgen Klopp’s side already had one foot in the last four after winning 3-1 in the quarterfinal first leg in Lisbon.

Despite two late goals from Benfica at Anfield in the second leg, Liverpool advanced 6-4 on aggregate thanks to Roberto Firmino’s double and Ibrahima Konate’s opener.

Meanwhile, underdogs Villarreal had eliminated favourites Bayern Munich after forcing them to a 1-1 draw on Tuesday to set up the semi-final clash with Liverpool.
