Liverpool face Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday, with Jurgen Klopp potentially facing a selection dilemma.
The next seven days could shape Klopp’s legacy at Anfield but his decisions in terms of managing a squad as he tries to juggle a European and a pivotal Premier League clash just 72 hours later in Newcastle.
Barcelona, meanwhile, are in great form with Lionel Messi leading the charge.
Here are the key stats ahead of the game:
Liverpool are the only English side to win away at Barcelona in European competition.
Barcelona are unbeaten in 31 Champions League home games (W28 D3), the best ever such run in the competition.
Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has scored 24 goals in just 32 Champions League matches against English opposition.
This is Liverpool’s 11th appearance in the European Cup/Champions League semi-finals – they’ve progressed from eight of their previous 10.
Liverpool have never lost in four previous away meetings with Barcelona in all competitions.
