Barcelona vs Liverpool prediction

The English Premier League is well-represented in Europe this season, with a team in each semi-final tie of the Champions League and Europa League.

Liverpool probably have the toughest, coming up against the 2018-19 Spanish La Liga champions in Barcelona.

Ernesto Valverde was able to rest a number of his stars in recent weeks with such a lead over Atletico Madrid on their way to confirming their 26th title on Saturday.

This should be an entertaining first leg at the Camp Nou on Wednesday night with two excellent attacks going head-to-head.

Barcelona were the only team to keep clean sheets in both legs of their quarter-final and with the likes of Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets in midfield they should see more of the ball than the Premier League side in the first leg.

Lionel Messi up against Andy Robertson and Luis Suarez matching up against Joel Matip, I cannot see Jurgen Klopp’s side keeping a clean sheet on the road.

At the other end, Liverpool’s front three haven’t been in hot form of late but I can see them scoring an important away goal in the first leg. But still, Barcelona are rightfully the favourites for the first leg and tie.
