    Liverpool's quest for fourth place may have hit the buffers with the weekend draw against Newcastle but they still have a chance of bringing Champions League football back to Anfield next season by winning the Europa League.

    Jurgen Klopp's men travel to the Estadio El Madrigal to face a Villarreal side riding high in fourth place in La Liga, four points clear of Celta Vigo but 20 behind Real Madrid in third.

    We'll have full coverage across the BBC Sport website and BBC Radio 5 live from 18:30 BST here.
