After eliminating Porto in the Champions League quarter-final, Merseyside outfit Liverpool will now face Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona who are favourites for the title this season after eliminating Man United.

The Reds team now have the hope of seeing their second consecutive Champions League finals if they are able to see past the Spanish side.

One challenge for Liverpool will be how to stop Argentina international Lionel Messi knowing that he was responsible for the downfall of the Red Devils and manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that he hopes his team are able to find a way to stop him.

However, Jurgen Klopp has been told by former player Xavi Alonso that the La Liga team are beatable despite the fact that it looks difficult.

According to Xabi Alonso, the Reds team can boast of their last season’s experience to see past Barcelona, adding that it would be a great game to behold.

He stressed that the attack force of the Jurgen Klopp team with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino is also formidable and will pose a threat to the Barcelona defence.

Meanwhile, the Reds team have got the English Premier League title to fight for and they hope to win the double at the end of the season.
