CAIRO – 1 May 2019: Barcelona fans are expected to pack the Camp Nou to cheer for their players who face English giants, Liverpool, at UEFA Champions League semis first leg.
The Catalan team, who won the Spanish League title on Saturday, hopes to secure a comfortable victory ahead of the second leg in Liverpool.
Barcelona, led by Ernesto Valverde, eyes winning everything this season especially the Champions League title as they failed to achieve the title since 2015 despite their domestic dominance.
Valverde counts on Barcelona fans to support the team against a tough team like Liverpool, saying “The fans at the Camp Nou have been decisive in recent weeks, with more than 90,000 people coming and you can notice the difference, we notice it and the rivals do as well, and we suppose that they will push us on.”
Liverpool reached UEFA Champions League Final last season when they lost 3-1 to Barcelona arch rivals, Real Madrid.
Valverde added “We play at home and our intention is to win, but we know we will have to play two good games as Liverpool has strong outbursts that can overwhelm you completely in 15 minutes, and sometimes it succeeds.”
The game starts on 9:00 pm.
