Liverpool FC must climb a massive mountain when they host FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semifinal second leg, trailing 3-0.
If Liverpool FC are to make a return trip to the UEFA Champions League final this season, they will need to engineer the greatest comeback in the club’s long history of European competition — and one of the greatest by any team in the Champions League, the BBC says — as they enter the second leg match trailing 3-0 on aggregate after taking a beating in Barcelona last week. Lionel Messi scored a pair of second-half goals for the Spanish champions, all but assuring their passage to the final and chance at bringing the Champions League trophy to Catalonia for the second time in five years and the sixth time in the competition’s history, unless Liverpool engineer a miracle in the match that will live stream from Anfield.

Liverpool won the 2005 Champions League Final after coming from three goals down at the half to level the score and ultimately win on penalties, as the BBC reported at the time. But this time, they must score four goals against Barcelona without allowing one by perhaps the most powerful scoring machine in world football.
This season alone, Barcelona has played a total of 56 games — and scored 133 goals, according to WhoScored statistics, 26 in their 11 Champions League matches alone.
And as if their task was not daunting enough, Liverpool will be without their own top goal scorer. Mo Salah — who has scored 26 in 49 games — has been ruled out with a concussion suffered in last weekend’s 3-2 league win over Newcastle United. The team’s other top striker, Robert Firmino (16 goals in 46 games), will also be unavailable with a muscle injury, The Washington Post reported.
Liverpool top scorer Mo Salah suffered a concussion in the weekend’s match against Newcastle, and will not play against Barcelona.
