Liverpool FC meet Barcelona at Anfield on Tuesday night (local time) in the Champions’ League 2018-19 semi-final 2nd leg, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool team having what looks to be a nigh on impossible task to overturn a 3-0 1st leg deficit from the game in the Camp Nou last week.
The final score in the first match was quite harsh on a Liverpool team that had the better of the game for long periods, although in the end it could have been an even wider margin of victory as Barcelona missed some excellent late scoring chances to put the outcome of the tie beyond any doubt.
Liverpool’s task is made all the more difficult in that they will be missing two key forwards in Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino through injury.
