After Mo Salah went down with an injury on Saturday, most thought Liverpool's chances to advance to a second Champions League Final was over.

"I am very thankful to Liverpool, to the fans and to the club, and obviously it's clear that if I score a goal against Liverpool [at Anfield] I won't celebrate it".

Barca hold a 3-0 lead from the opening match - thanks mostly to the enduring genius of Lionel Messi - while Liverpool's slim chances of reaching a second successive final have been further hit by a double injury blow. The Croatian is seeking to move elsewhere for a new challenge having won everything at Barcelona and Jurgen Klopp is looking to lure him to the Premier League with Liverpool, according to Diario GOL.

Meanwhile, home side Liverpool will have their hands full in the absence of strikers Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino after both were ruled out due to injuries.

"Before the game we knew that it would be hard but it was still possible of course".

Their task has been made more hard with the news that Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will be unavailable for the second leg, with the pair's combined totals of 42 goals and 17 assists this season likely to be a huge miss for the Reds.

There are no remaining direct flights from Liverpool to Madrid on the day of the game and fans will have to get creative to land a cheap deal if they are to take their place inside the Wanda Metropolitano for the final.

Alisson has played every minute of Champions League football this season.

He was in charge of Real's semi-final clash with Bayern Munich last season and he controversially chose not to award the German side a penalty.

To have your most experienced player and captain step up and pull something like that out of the bag really was a magical moment, and it showed that destiny might be on Manchester City's side (although Liverpool have had their moments this season).

"Who's going to the final?"

Meanwhile, former Liverpool stars Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho start in attack for Barcelona on their return to Anfield.

Probably the greatest comeback in Champions League history, Liverpool came from 3-0 down at half-time against AC Milan in the miracle of Istanbul.

"At that moment, I might have said 'why did you do that?!'"
