The Champions League returns as English Premier League side Liverpool host Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona for the second leg of the semi-finals after a 3-0 shoreline against the Reds team.

From every analysis, all odds have been staked against the Jurgen Klopp side as it would only require magic and incredible efforts to be able to turn the table around to see the second finals in two years.

To make it more difficult, the German boss has lost two of his strikers – Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah to injuries which means the force power in the attack he earlier boasted of cannot be in place in the game.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp has hinted that he plans to do something very different to be able to secure a win against Barcelona as he rues the missed chances by his team in the first leg.

There are therefore suggestions that the former Borussia Dortmund manager will introduce Rhian Brewster in the attack to give a surprise package to Barcelona as he hopes to make them sweat before seeing the finals.

Jurgen Klopp had praised the 19-year-old who has been prolific in the different age grades for the England national teams in the past.
