Liverpool vs Barcelona predictions – Liverpool line-up

Liverpool have a mountain to climb after the 3-0 defeat at the hands of Barcelona in the first leg. The Reds will have their fans to back them to stage an extraordinary comeback in the reverse fixture on Tuesday.

The Reds had a difficult outing against Newcastle on Saturday but the prospect of a place in the final of the Champions League should be enough motivation for Jurgen Klopp’s side to bring their A-game on Tuesday.
