LIVE: Barcelona vs. Liverpool | UEFA Champions League semi-final

Date: Wednesday, May 1

Time: 21:00 CLT / 15:00 ET

Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona took down one English giant in the Champions League quarterfinals, and now Lionel Messi and co. are looking to defeat another one in the semis.

With the La Liga title wrapped up, Barca can turn its full attention to attaining European glory. Standing in the Catalan club’s way is Liverpool, a team with just as much success in the Champions League.

Liverpool poses a completely different challenge. With a counter-attacking lineup built to run at defenses all game, the leader of the trio is considered to be Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian international and reigning Premier League Player of the Year, Salah hasn’t necessarily recreated the heights of last year’s campaign but is still one of the most creative players in the world.

Salah has the pace, skill, and understanding of the game to consistently be found in the most dangerous of areas on the pitch. Pair these innate attributes with Salah’s finishing inside and outside the box, and he has the necessary traits to flip the tie Liverpool’s way at any point in the upcoming 180 minutes.

Liverpool travels to Barcelona for the first time in 12 years for the opening leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final clash on Wednesday, hoping to channel the same spirit that led them to victory in 2007.

Match Preview

The Reds beat the Blaugrana 2-1 at the Camp Nou in that season’s round of 16 and eventually fell to AC Milan in the final. Jurgen Klopp’s side finished runners-up to Real Madrid in 2018 and see their route to Champions League glory blocked by another Spanish titan.

Barcelona are yet to lose a competitive fixture at home in 2019, and manager Ernesto Valverde rested some key stars as they beat Levante 1-0 on Saturday to retain La Liga and extend their domestic dominance.
