Barcelona vs Liverpool

Liverpool travelled to Barcelona on Tuesday for the first leg of their semi-final clash.

Jurgen Klopp’s side then host Barca in the reverse fixture on May 7th.

With Tottenham already 1-0 down to Ajax in the other UCL semi-final, Liverpool may have been England’s best hope at winning the Champions League this year.

The Reds made it to last years finals but were beaten 3-1 by Barcelona’s rivals, Real Madrid.

Heading into the game Liverpool have been in superb form, winning their last 10 matches across all competitions.

Messi’s ridiculous free kick

The first 45 was actually a pretty open contest between the two sides.

Luis Suarez would give Barcelona the lead in the 26th minute and celebrated against his former club.

However, Liverpool still had their fair share of chances, one of which Sadio Mane should have put away.

The second half would then begin with Suarez flinging himself to the floor after a challenge.

It was this and numerous over incidents including his pestering of the referee after the James Milner on Lionel Messi incident that caused some Liverpool fans to turn on Suarez.

Suarez was, of course, a key figure when Liverpool nearly won the league under Brendan Rodgers but there didn’t seem to be much love lost between either party on Wednesday.

It was also Suarez’s shot that bounced off the bar and back to Messi to make it 2-0.

Lionel Messi then killed the game and perhaps the tie off with a superb free-kick.

It was also Messi’s 600th Barca goal.

Twitter reaction

Here is how Twitter reacted to Messi’s second.
