Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool find themselves staring elimination from the Champions League squarely in the face following last week’s resounding 1st leg defeat at Barcelona in a heavy 3-0 loss, but nevertheless, if any side can mount a miraculous comeback it’s Liverpool as they look to score 4 goals without reply to go through to the final.

However, the rigours of not only top flight football and fighting for the league title but also involvement on the European front may well be starting to take its toll as The Reds struggled to put away Newcastle United on the weekend, eventually recording a last-gasp 3-2 win at St James’ Park.

How much that game against Newcastle took out of Liverpool remains to be seen, but the hosts will no doubt give it a real go in front of their home fans in this crucial 2nd leg, and having won their last 6 home matches on the trot in all competitions, the hosts will still remain upbeat about their chances here.

Liverpool have scored in 11 of their last 13 home ties in the Champions League.

Barcelona Prediction

Barcelona were in triumphant mood after last week’s 3-0 1st leg win over Liverpool and now seemingly have one foot already firmly placed in the Champions League final, but they’ll need to put in a professional 90 minutes at Anfield if they’re to do so.

It was a case of after the Lord Mayor’s show though on the weekend as Barcelona crashed to a 2-0 defeat away at Celta Vigo in their domestic La Liga but I daresay they’ll have no problems shifting up the gears ahead of this decisive 2nd leg clash at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Barcelona have lost just 1 of their last 22 matches overall in the Champions League while results away from home for the Spanish champions have seen them lose just 1 of their last 10 matches on their travels.

The visitors have scored in 6 of these last 10 away ties but obviously the Messi and ex-Liverpool striker Suarez factors cannot be overlooked or ignored as the visitors look to ensure they progress to the final of this competition.

 

Key-Facts – Liverpool v Barcelona

  • Liverpool have scored in 11 of their last 13 home ties in the Champions League
  • Barcelona have lost just 1 of their last 10 away ties in the Champions League
  • Barcelona have lost just 1 of their last 22 matches overall in the Champions League

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Barcelona are undoubtedly in the driving seat here but Liverpool won’t give up without a fight – both teams to score in this one.
