News about teams

Liverpool


Naby Keita has already closed the season after an injury suffered in the first game, which will cause Georgino Wijnaldum, Fabinhon and Jordan Hendersonon in the starting midfield formation.

Mohamed Salah was forced to leave the field in Liverpool's 3-2 win over Newcastle United after a bad clash with Martin Dubravka and this has caused the Egyptian to not appear at today's meeting.

However, Jurgen Klopp has announced that even Roberto Firmino will be out of the field until Adam Lallana is in doubt.

Barcelona

Ousmane Dembele has suffered an injury in the match with Celta Vigon and misses for Barcelona.

Rafinha is the only other concern for the Catalans after experiencing a back pain after the weekend's La Liga meeting.

Ernesto Valverde could name the same starting lineup as in the first match when he triumphed 3-0 at Camp Nou.

Facts

  • Barcelona has won the two matches in the last four matches (UEFA Champions League).
  • Barcelona has won the last four games (UEFA Champions League).
  • Barcelona has not scored the goal in the last three games (UEFA Champions League).
  • The boat has triumphed in 38 of the last 42 UEFA competitions and the home has not been defeated in any match this season (F3, B2).
  • Liverpool scored a goal in the first half in seven of their last nine home games.
  • Both teams scored goals in just three of the nine previous rounds.

Analysis

Liverpool will have a tough time in the second game at Anfield, but with fiery fans, they will be confident that they will make things difficult for Barcelona. If they can score an early goal, they can make a sensational comeback.

However, Barcelona has already completed the work as far as the championship title is concerned until all the players have been resting during the weekend in defeat against Celta Vigo. Before that defeat, the Blaugrana were undefeated in 11th row.

The match promises to have a fantastic atmosphere in Anfield on Tuesday evening, but if Lionel Messi shines once again, then Barcelona is to secure their place in the Champions League final.

Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Barcelona
