Liverpool vs Barcelona 2019 UEFA Champions League

​Liverpool have a mountain to climb in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final meeting with Barcelona at Anfield on Tuesday night.

La Blaugrana go into the rematch with a healthy three goal advantage after securing a 3-0 victory at Camp Nou last week. A deft finish from Luis Suarez and a Lionel Messi double helped Ernesto Valverde's men take a stranglehold on the tie, with a superb treble still on the cards for the Catalans.

They have already wrapped up a second successive​ La Liga title, whilst Valencia lie in wait the Copa del Rey final. The ​Reds could also claim domestic silverware this season, their pulsating 3-2 win over ​Newcastle United on Saturday keeping them in the hunt to claim a first ​Premier League trophy.

Check out 90min's preview of the crucial clash below.

Team News

Liverpool top scorer Mohamed Salah was stretchered off with a head injury at St James' Park over the weekend, though there is an outside chance of the Egyptian featuring on Tuesday night. However, both Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita are missing with groin strains.

Adam Lallana completes the list of those unavailable for Jurgen Klopp, the out-of-favour midfielder currently sidelined with a muscular problem. Fortunately for the coach, none of his squad are suspended for a pivotal match in their season.


​Barça centre-back Jean-Clair Todibo is ineligible for European action, whilst Ousmane Dembele will miss out after suffering a hamstring tear over the weekend.

Rafinha has been out of action since November after rupturing his anterior cruciate knee ligament and will not return until next term, Valverde having no further casualties to account for.

Predicted Lineups


Liverpool​Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson; Shaqiri, Mane, Sturridge.
Barcelona​ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, Lenglet, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal; Messi, Coutinho, Suarez.

Head to Head Record

This will be the 10th time the two sides have locked horns, the record perfectly balanced at three wins apiece. However, the Mersyesiders have emerged triumphant in just one of the last five match-ups, Craig Bellamy and John Arne Riise both scoring in a 2-1 away victory 12 years ago.

Messi was on the pitch that day, yet struggled to impact proceedings as he and his teammates were booted out of the​ Champions League. Things were rather different last Wednesday, however, with the Argentine magician single-handedly dismantling a stunned Reds outfit.


He brought up 600 goals for the club he joined as a wide-eyed 13-year-old with a freakishly accurate free-kick in the first leg, the crowd brought to its feet by a goal of supreme majesty. That delicious strike compounded Klopp's misery and completed a perfect night for Valverde.

Suarez had broken the deadlock midway through the opening period, nudging Jordi Alba's tantalising cross past the helpless Alisson. Messi then walked the ball in after the break when the Uruguayan's improvised effort rebounded off the crossbar, his sumptuous strike minutes later topping off a marvellous performance.

Lionel Messi after scoring his second goal and Barcelona's third in the first leg©AFP/Getty Images Barcelona hold a sizeable advantage as they travel to Anfield looking for a first two-legged victory against Liverpool, which would earn a first UEFA Champions League final appearance since 2015. • Former Liverpool striker Luis Suárez gave Barcelona a first-half lead in the first leg at the Camp Nou, before Lionel Messi struck twice in the final 15 minutes – his first goals against Liverpool – to create a cushion to take to Merseyside. Barcelona have reason to be wary, however, having bowed out of last season's competition despite a first-leg victory by a three-goal margin. • Barcelona are in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals for the first time since winning their fifth European title four seasons ago, although they have won only two of their last five contests at this stage. Liverpool, meanwhile, have reached successive semi-finals but have it all to do against a team who ha…
