Liverpool welcomes Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final with a ‘huge’ mountain to climb.
The Reds go into the second leg at a 0-3 aggregate scoreline, having failed to score at the Nou Camp, and with major injuries to Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita.
Jurgen Klopp has never lost a two-leg tie in Europe while at the Liverpool helm, but a Barca side led by the almighty Lionel Messi in strong form may just herald the end of his scintillating record.
Should Barca score, then The Reds will need to net five times to go through, due to the away goals rule.
However, with a place in the final to play for, anything could happen.
The men in red and blue have their own injuries to contend with, as Ousmane Dembele and Rafinha have been ruled out of the tie.
On the whole, the odds are strongly with Barca in terms of the aggregate result.
Jurgen Klopp side need to score four un-replied goals against Barcelona to progress to the final of the Champions League.
A huge task, right? But there are very few clubs better than Liverpool at staging European upsets.
