Liverpool 0 – Barcelona 3
Optimists will remember that Liverpool have overturned a 3-0 deficit in the Champions League before.
But can Jurgen Klopp’s side really do that against Barcelona?
Leo Messi scored twice in the Camp Nou as the Catalans took a monster lead in their two-legged semi-final with the Reds.
Luis Suarez opened the scoring for Barca on the night.
Should Barcelona score at Anfield, Liverpool would need five goals to progress through to the final.
Ousmane Dembele injury updates
Barcelona lost 2-0 away at Celta Vigo on Saturday night in La Liga.
Of course, Barca have already been crowned champions in Spain.
Barcelona were hit with bad news for Ousmane Dembele against CVelta.
Dembele has only just returned to action following his latest spell on the sidelines. However, against Celta, the French forward picked up another knock.
Dembele went down with a hamstring problem, and that’s likely to mean he misses the Liverpool game.

For the record, Philippe Coutinho started the first-leg against Liverpool instead of Dembele.
The Spanish press, though, are fearing the worst for Dembele this Sunday.
If Dembele has indeed sustained a hamstring injury, that could keep him sidelined for several weeks.
