Barcelona vs Liverpool (By: Hardcore)
Barcelona is hosting Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final and tonight we will watch a "final before finals" type of game. No matter who ends up in the final from the second game (Ajax or Tottenham) it more than likely won't be as exciting as this tie between Liverpool and Barca.
Liverpool probably understands that the title in England is lost and therefore saving anything for their last two remaining games (specially the Newcastle away one which is in just few days) could do them more harm than good. Manchester City will not drop any more points and they have much bigger advantage being out of the Champions League compared to Liverpool.
Barcelona had a lucky spell this domestic season with no competetive candidates rising up to the challenge so all the pressure was off of them, both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid failed to deliver a title challenge.
Clearly there's a valid reason for higher odds on home win of Barcelona and that is because they weren't that great at all. If Messi is not at his best then this team is really poor at times and they struggle to both create and score.
Liverpool's defending has been spectacular ever since Virgil arrived and it's night and day compared to previous few years. By all means Liverpool can get a positive first result and avoid losing in Barcelona.
