At one point Villarreal defender Pau Torres was heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich and after his club gutted the Bavarians from the Champions League, his name is the one many fans of the rekordmeister won’t soon forget.
Torres was one of the Villarreal stars who put down Bayern Munich in that encounter, but a daunting clash against Liverpool beckons and the 25-year-old doesn’t expect the Premier League side to tackle the yellow submarine with the same level of hubris that Bayern Munich and Juventus displayed.
“(Liverpool) are the clear favorites at the moment, they are in good form,” Pau Torres has told Marca (captured by Football Espana). “It’s almost as if they weren’t there and then they took advantage of every mistake. We have to know who we are playing against and it is normal to recognize that they are the favourites, but Juve and Bayern were too. We are here to prepare, work hard and continue to surprise. In the end, we have nothing to lose. We are hungry to do great things. We will be less surprised because we have just eliminated Juve and Bayern; Liverpool will be a bit more humble than Bayern were. We will prepare conscientiously knowing what we are training for.
