Liverpool – Barcelona : Preview & Prediction
Barcelona did the hardest in the first leg. In this shock of the Champions League semi-finals, the Catalan club took a not insignificant advantage against Liverpool by winning largely Camp Nou (3-0). The Blaugrana are now hoping to finish the job for this meeting at Anfield. Ernesto Valverde was able to blow all his managers last weekend. Already crowned Spanish champion, Barça has not hesitated to completely change his starting lineup. A very different datum on the Liverpool side. Indeed, the Reds are still fighting with Manchester City to win the Premier League. Despite a crucial victory in Newcastle last weekend (3-2), Jürgen Klopp’s men saw Mohamed Salah’s injury. While Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita will already be away for the second leg, Mohamed Salah’s could be problematic for the Reds. Faced with FC Barcelona who seems ready for anything to win the Champions League, Liverpool may well fail to give hope to his audience.
