Liverpool must be perfect to beat Barcelona, admits Klopp
Liverpool welcome LaLiga champions Barca to Anfield in Tuesday’s second leg, though they face a daunting task following goals from Suarez and Lionel Messi, who scored twice, a week ago at Camp Nou.
The Reds have been dealt a blow with Mohamed Salah ruled out after suffering a concussion in Saturday’s vital Premier League win upon Newcastle United, while Roberto Firmino will likewise be missing.
While understandably conservative about Liverpool’s hopes of progressing to the final, Klopp called on Liverpool’s fans to make a « party » climate to help out the home team.
« It looks like you have to be perfect to beat them, so we should try that, » Klopp told the media.
« Do that step by step. Creating an atmosphere, using that atmosphere and praise the circumstance with great football and make a football party.
« It’s possible and it’s likely that it’s our last Champions League game for this campaign, so we should commend it with our legs, with our lungs and we’ll see what the result is.
Liverpool need to score and stop Barcelona
« We know about how big the challenge is, but this team is so wonderful. We will all attempt 100 percent yet that doesn’t mean it will work.
« That’s how we always did it and that’s what we will do again. Two of the best strikers on the planet are not accessible and we need to score four goals.
