Premier League leaders Liverpool have their work cut out ahead of the Champions League clash with Spanish giants Barcelona on Tuesday night.

The Reds host Barcelona at Anfield in what’s the second leg of their Champions League semifinal tie with the home side trailing 3-0 from the first leg at the Nou Camp last week Tuesday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and his players are in pursuit of two major trophies this season but one could slip out of their hands if they don’t overturn the first leg deficit against Barcelona.

Klopp and his boys have to score three unreplied goals to force extra time and the task has been made more difficult following the news that two of the Reds’ famed forward trio will miss the game.

Both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will miss the game because of head and muscle injuries respectively.

Despite the injury setbacks, Liverpool are still the favourites to get a result in the second leg at the odds of 2.45 according to the betting tips from Surebet247.

Barcelona won the first leg convincingly in the end and they are backed for the same outcome of a win in the second leg with odds of 2.75 as revealed by Surebet247.

The possibility of a stalemate between the two sides is highly likely and it’s accompanied by odds of 3.65 according to Surebet247.

Barcelona are overwhelming favourites to qualify for the Champions League final ahead of Liverpool at the odds of 1.02 while the Reds have odds of 13.00.
