Liverpool have a mountain to climb as they attempt to overturn a three-goal deficit against Barcelona at Anfield in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final tie this evening.
Barcelona are in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals for the first time since winning their fifth European title four seasons ago, although they have won only two of their last five contests at this stage.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have reached successive semi-finals but have it all to do against a team who have won their last two games at Anfield.
This is the teams’ tenth fixture, six of the previous nine having come in a six-year period between 2001 and 2007.
Each side has now recorded three wins with Barcelona scoring nine goals to Liverpool’s six – although the English club have won all three two-legged contests on aggregate.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
BT will also air Tottenham’s visit to Ajax on Wednesday evening on the same channel.
