Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp sounded disappointed, but philosophical. “Football is like this,” he says. “It’s about scoring goals and they scored three goals and we scored none. The performance was great and the boys were really good. I’m really happy with the performance but I’m not happy with the result. You don’t get grades in this game, you only get a hard result.
Liverpool will host Barcelona next week at world famous Anfield stadium in the Champions League on 7 May semi-final second leg. Almost every sports betting website tries to predict a winner. Here is free bet offers for this football game on Tuesday evening.
Liverpool midfielder James Milner in an interview with BeIN SPORTS:
Now we need to make a miracle. It is very important in the return match not to rush forward with the whole team with the starting whistle, because then the mission will definitely become impossible. But today everyone has seen that we have a fighting spirit and a brave heart.
We’ll see what happens at Anfield. We’ll give all the best, I can promise. At our stadium there have already been special matches.
Ex-Real Madrid star Fernando Redondo told “He makes everything different,” “He is the one that unbalances things at any moment, he does it with assists, with a shot from far, close, with a drive, with a cross. It is really out of series. I will not tire of praising him.”
Speaking of the game at the Camp Nou, Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde told:
What I liked today – we knew that we would have to work hard on the field, and we did just that. There were stretches of the match when Liverpool had an overwhelming advantage. The way today put pressure on Messi shows once again what the club and his teammates mean to him.
We had to really try to keep our gates locked. Liverpool have a great team, and there is still 90 minutes ahead of Anfield.
So let’s wait to see this unforgettable game at Anfield on 7th of May, as both sides promise.
