Think of every miracle that has happened in sport, double it, and that is the task Liverpool face if they are to overcome a 3-0 first leg deficit against Barcelona and reach their second straight Champions League final.

Predictions

Lionel Messi produced yet another masterclass to put Barcelona on the cusp on yet another final in a season that could see the Catalan club land a treble of trophies.

A 3-0 home win in the first leg did not quite do Liverpool justice as they often had the Spaniards on the ropes but were unable to capitalise and sneak an away goal that they undoubtedly deserved.

Now, Jurgen Klopp’s men need a miracle reminiscent of their 2005 Champions League final turnaround when they trailed AC Milan 3-0 at the break but went on to lift the famous trophy.

However, Barca are something of a different proposition and even the most ardent Reds fan must surely know that they are huge underdogs with popular sportsbooks to get the job done.

Especially when you consider Barcelona have lost just one of their last 10 Champions League away games and have already wrapped up Spanish title. That enables Ernesto Valverde to rest a number of star players at the weekend.

Although Liverpool’s home record is strong with no defeats in the last 13 in the Champions League and unbeaten in the league this season, the need to attack will leave them exposed at the back.

Expect Barca to counter making the game something of a goal-fest but a fourth draw in the sides tenth meeting to ensue with a highly entertaining 2-2.

Statistics

Head to Head

This will be the 10th meeting between the two sides in competitive action.

Messi struck twice in the first leg to give the Catalans a 3-0 home leg win, but it hasn’t always gone Barca’s way.

In the 2007 Champions League last 16, Liverpool progressed on the away goals rule 2-2 over the two legs and went all the way to final only to lose to AC Milan.

In total, the head to head record is remarkably even with Liverpool boasting three wins, Barcelona three wins and three draws.

Stats

  • Both sides have recorded three wins against the other in European competition.
  • Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has scored 25 goals against the Premier League big six sides since the 2011/12 season.
  • Liverpool won the first ever meeting between the pair 1-0 in the 1976 UEFA Cup.
  • Both sides have won Europe’s top prize a total of five times.
