Barcelona vs Liverpool (By: Dajkula)
At the Camp Nou, Barcelona will host Liverpool for the first semi-final match of the Champions League. Barcelona came to this tie eliminating Manchester quite easy while Liverpool did the same with Porto. Both teams were convincing on home ground while Liverpool demonstrated clinical scoring in the return match. They beat Porto with 4:1 but the score was a bit misleading. Porto had over 20 shots and more on the frame but failed to score from many chances created. Liverpool shot and scored every time they came near the goal. Liverpool is confident for sure but these 2 matches will be extra tricky. They have the league to think of while Barca already secured the title.
Barca is in big form and Messi especially. They have won 24 of the last 26 home Champions league matches and they just give something extra here. They will be tested in the return match for sure but this is the match they can make the advantage. With Messi, I would keep an eye on Coutinho today. He is not at his best but he can bring an advantage to this tie. If there is a match to shine, this is it.
Liverpool has Mane and Salah in good form though Salah may not be 100%. They won their last Champions League matches against Bayern and Porto and if they can keep the defensive shape Barca will have problems. Yet, they have not always brought their A game. Liverpool lost plenty of matches away and Barca knows how to play against the English.
I see Barca as the winner in this game.
