The result seems like a replica of Barcelona’s loss to AS Roma last season. Barca failed to proceed in the tournament after losing 4-1 to Roma. Liverpool’s win shall see the Merseyside playing the Uefa champions final in two consecutive years. Last season they lost to Real Madrid in the final.

Barcelona had no excuse for the loss considering that almost every player was fresh after they were rested in the match they lost to Celta Vigo.
