Hold your breath as two of Europe’s most decorated clubs meet in what should be a night to remember at the Camp Nou with Barcelona and Liverpool fighting for a Champions League final place.

Predictions

The path to Madrid is paved with good intentions but you can forget any niceties as Barcelona host Liverpool in this epic Champions League first leg.

The pair boast a total of 10 Champions League wins between them (five apiece) with many fans viewing the winner of this two-legged affair the favourites to go on and lift the title.

A number of popular sportsbooks agree, and much will come down to individual performances such as that of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Liverpool’s Mo Salah.

However, one thing Liverpool will be wary of is Barcelona’s European home record. Ernesto Valverde’s men are 31 games unbeaten in the competition on home soil making for a daunting prospect for the visitors.

Records are there to be broken though and if there is a side who can do it, Liverpool have a better chance than most.

The Reds’ last trip to the Camp Nou saw them walk away with a valuable 2-1 first-leg lead which eventually helped Liverpool reach the final and Jurgen Klopp will look to use that as inspiration once more.

However, Barca are the only side yet to lose a game in the competition this season and one would suggest the Reds will be happy to get away with an away goal and single goal margin loss.

That makes a thoroughly entertaining 2-1 home result our prediction which a reverse of Liverpool’s last trip to Barcelona.
