Lionel Messi's brilliant record against English sides is just one stat we've picked out here to help you win bets in the Champions League with betPawa. 

Liverpool vs Barcelona preview 🏆

Barcelona's 3-0 win at Nou Camp last week puts them in a commanding position ahead of their trip to Anfield but football has taught us to never say never. However, with Lionel Messi in their ranks and Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino absent through injury, Barcelona will be confident that they can get the job done.

Recent miraculous comebacks will give Liverpool hope, most notably Roma's effort against Barcelona last season where they turned around a 4-1 first-leg deficit to advance 4-4 on aggregate over two legs. Liverpool needs something even more miraculous against Messi & co tonight. 

One thing that we can be sure of is that it will be a pulsating night of attacking football. Jurgen Klopp has said insisted that if his said fails, they will fail beautifully. "If we can do it, wonderful, and if not then fail in the most beautiful way, if you want, with a close result."
