Liverpool Vs Barcelona UCL 07 May Preview
Liverpool have a daunting task ahead of them and a tall mountain to climb as they look to overturn a 3-0 deficit to Barcelona when they take on the Catalans at Anfield on Tuesday night.
Liverpool have now reached two semi-finals and are now in danger of coming away with nothing. A win for City against Brighton would mean them losing out on their title chase and need to get at least a title to show for all their worries this term.
As if that’s not enough problems, they would have to overturn a 3-0 scoreline against Barcelona who have won their last two games at Anfield and would have to do so without the presence of Salah and Firmino on the field of play.
Liverpool might be feeling comfy at the back having never conceded a goal since their group game against PSG and recording four clean sheets in their last four games.
They should go out for the winner but can they do it? Still remains the question.

Barcelona do not take anything for granted having squandered a similar scoreline against Roma in the UCL last season.
A show of how serious Ernesto Valverde will be taking this game is resting his first team players against Celta Vigo where they lost 2-0.
When compared to their opponents, Liverpool, who had a must-win game against Newcastle, Barcelona would like to think they have the upper hand.
The Blaugranas may have won only five of their last 18 away UCL games but four of these five wins have come against Premier League teams.
Barcelona haven’t lifted this trophy since they last did in 2015 and would be looking to make sure of it this time around.
