Former Man United is not keeping mute on the big semi-final clashes in the UEFA Champions League this season as he makes a big claim on the expected clash between the English Premier League side Liverpool and Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona later in May.

Liverpool were able to book the clash against Barcelona after defeating Porto while Man United were defeated by the Spanish giants.

A win for the Reds team will mean they will be playing in the finals for the second consecutive year and that remains the target of the club ahead of the game.

However, former Red Devils boss predicts that the Reds team have a 50% chance of playing in the finals because they also have a very strong squad.

Jose Mourinho, in his analysis stated that the Jurgen Klopp team are better than they were last season but noted that they will have to tackle the threat by Argentina international Lionel Messi as Barcelona without him makes Liverpool the favourites.

However, the Reds team have got the ambition of winning the double as they are also in the race for the Premier League title win against defending champions Man City which would be the first title won by manager Jurgen Klopp since he joined Liverpool.
