Contentos con el resultado de esta noche. Pero aún nos queda ir a Anfield, una cancha muy difícil, donde el Liverpool que es un equipazo apretará mucho. Viene el momento más importante de la temporada y hay que estar más juntos y unidos que nunca. Por último, quiero aprovechar para mandarle un abrazo a @ikercasillas y desearle que se recupere muy pronto.
Liverpool need to be at their best on Tuesday evening if they are to overturn the deficit and qualify for the finals for a second year in a row.
However, many consider it an uphill task with Messi in the Barca lineup.
