Betting Previews

A heavyweight clash between two traditional European giants will serve up a feast of attacking football tonight. Barcelona vs Liverpool in the Champions League semifinals is one to savour, and we've got all of the head to head stats, individual records & winning bets. 

Barcelona vs Liverpool preview 🏆

It doesn't get much more mouthwatering than a semifinal between Barcelona and Liverpool in the Champions League. Messi and Barca wrapped up the LaLiga title with time to spare and they've not got their sights set on a treble. Liverpool remains in the picture in England, tussling with Manchester City week by week until one of the sides blinks in an intriguing title race. For now, Liverpool's fearsome attacking unit will look to exploit minor weaknesses in the Barcelona defence and we feel that they can claim important away goals at the Nou Camp in the first leg. They'll also draw strength from the fact that they're the last English side to win away to the Catalan side.

Messi, Suarez, Salah & Mane should light up Nou Camp on a night where Liverpool might fancy their chances of replicating that famous win in 2007.
