Liverpool have become the first English club to reach the final of the European Cup/Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup in the same season.
Villarreal had never lost (P7 W2 D5) or conceded more than once at home in the knockout stages of the Champions League before tonight.
They are only the second side to lose a Champions League semi-final match despite leading by 2+ goals at half-time, after Ajax vs Spurs in 2018-19.
Liverpool have reached their 10th European Cup/Champions League final, the fourth side to reach the competition showpiece on 10+ occasions, after Real Madrid (16), Bayern Munich (11) and AC Milan (11).
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has reached the final of the Champions League for the fourth time as a manager, now the joint-most of any coach in the competition along with Alex Ferguson, Carlo Ancelotti and Marcello Lippi.
Liverpool have scored 139 goals in 57 games in all competitions in 2021-22, their highest ever total in a single season in their club history.
