Barcelona vs Liverpool

Liverpool have never lost at Barcelona’s Camp Nou.

Indeed, on the last occasion Liverpool visited the Catalans, Craig Bellamy and John Arne Riise lead Liverpool to a 2-1 win.

Who will forget Bellamy’s golf celebration back in 2007?

So will the Reds record another famous Champions League result in Spain on Wednesday night?

Or will Barca, fresh from winning the La Liga title, finally beat Liverpool on their own home patch?

Virgil van Dijk confirms he’s got a foot problem

One issue for Liverpool before the Barcelona game is the fitness of Virgil van Dijk.

Van Dijk suffered a foot injury in last Friday’s 5-0 win over Huddersfield at Anfield.

Steve Mounie left the Dutch defender with an injury issue in the second half.

For the record, Van Dijk completed the 90 minutes against the Terriers.

Prior to Wednesday’s Camp Nou clash, Van Dijk has confirmed he has a foot problem however he’s also certain to play in the Champions League semifinal:

It’s sore, but you are never pain-free when you play — especially at the end of the season. So I will be fine.

Liverpool have also been boosted at the back with the return of Joe Gomez in recent weeks.
