Liverpool Knocked Barcelona Out of the Champions League When They Weren't Looking

Jurgen Klopp Barcelona PS

That's tough to swallow for Barcelona, especially coming off a first leg where their season was ended in similarly brutal fashion.

Former Red Suarez scored the opening goal for Barca against his old side before a brace from Lionel Messi swung the tie in favour of Ernesto Valverde's side, despite a spirited performance from Liverpool at the Nou Camp.

Amid the injury crisis, the German insists tonight they will treat the Reds faithful to a spectacle, irrespective of whether they progress to the final for consecutive season. Overall, the odds are strongly with Barcelona in terms of the aggregate result.

We shouldn't forget, though, that Spurs were missing some vitally important players last week - most notably Kane, Son, Winks and, at the start at least, Sissoko - so we'll see how much better they are with at least a couple of those players back. I said immediately after the first game it was not a time for shouting our mouth off about what might happen back in England - "half-time" this and "second leg" that. Words and phrases won't win us this contest.

But when the appointment was announced, Barca fans were not impressed. The situation is the situation.

"That is clear. We need a little bit more (luck) at home". It's easy to carp from the sidelines, but people don't realise what a stressful job being a manager is, and a European trophy at the end of the campaign will be a major achievement for whoever gets it.

TV channel: Coverage begins from 7pm on BT Sport 2, which can be streamed on the BT Sport app and on the BT Sport website.

After being restricted to a cameo appearance from the bench last week, Roberto Firmino's groin injury has ruled him out of the return, while Mohamed Salah is also unavailable due to a head injury sustained in the weekend win at Newcastle United.

The absence of two of their most potent weapons leaves Jurgen Klopp's side at a huge disadvantage in a match that was already a massive challenge - but defender Trent Alexander-Arnold says it will be a night for someone else to rise to the occasion.

"Klopp knows Barcelona can't be allowed to dominate the ball, so he might play a 3-5-2 with [Divock] Origi and [Sadio] Mane up front". That's it, that's all.
