Barcelona vs Liverpool
Barcelona have reclaimed their La Liga title with time to spear and a triple-winning season still remains on the cards.
Barcelona is now winning their last four matches across all competitions, including a 3-0 win over Manchester United in the quarter-finals a fortnight ago, the mood in Ernesto Valverde’s camp will be on a high.
Looking to end their four-year wait to lift a European crown, one man who has continued to spearhead Barcelona’s stellar campaign both domestically and in Europe is five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi.
Once again set reclaim his La Liga Golden Boot and sat 13 goals clear of his closest contender, the Argentinian superstar has 10 Champions League strikes to his name and is averaging a goal every 66 minutes.
Now winning their last three European outings on the bounce, Barcelona also hold a very commanding record at the Nou Camp. Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 31 Champions League outings the Catalan giants have conceded just 15 goals in those 31 games, and never more than once in a match.
Liverpool may have seen Manchester City leapfrog them into pole position in the Premier League title race, Jurgen Klopp’s side are enjoying a very bright end to the season.
Sat two points adrift of the Sky Blues, the Reds have won their last 10 matches across all competitions and have scored two or more goals in each of those victories.
Picking up a morale-boosting 5-0 win over an already relegated Huddersfield last weekend, the former Borussia Dortmund boss will be looking for his side to carry on their recent European performances outside of Merseyside.
Despite enduring a run that saw them lose five consecutive Champions League matches away from Anfield, Liverpool have picked up back-to-back victories over Bayern Munich and Porto.
Despite Mohamed Salah refinding his form, Senegal international Sadio Mane has now bagged four in his last four and has three in his last three Champions League matchups.
The Blaugrana have no major injury concerns and Valverde is likely to have to chose between fielding former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele, both of whom are available.
Liverpool have concerns over Roberto Firmino, who missed the Friday night win over Huddersfield, although the club hope to have him back for Wednesday. Fabinho also missed Friday’s game, but could return as well at the Camp Nou.
