Twitter gears up for the second leg of UCL semi-final between Liverpool and Barcelona
The doomsday is here, either for an improbable FC Barcelona, or an almost certain Liverpool. Anfield is set to stage the biggest European match of the season yet, when Liverpool host FC Barcelona in the semi-final second leg of the UEFA Champions League.
Barcelona head into the tie with a 3-0 advantage, thanks to goals from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou last week, and the footballing world is almost certain that the tie is done and dusted. But, they face the Reds from Liverpool who have been defying odds since the start of last season, and are looking to book their spot in the Champions League final second season in a row.
It is going to take a miracle for Liverpool to beat Barcelona tonight and progress to the final of the competition, mainly because of significant absentees Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino who would have definitely put on a show tonight as the English club requires 4 goals or more to make it to the final in Madrid.
Nonetheless, irrespective of the dooming impossibility, Anfield is going to be magical and roaring tonight.
