Even for a club with such a rich history of comebacks against the odds, it would be something special if the Reds do it against Barcelona. They must attempt the impossible without two of their own stars, too. Mohamed Salah, their most decisive player, and Roberto Firmino, arguably their most important, will both miss the game. Jurgen Klopp is targeting a “perfect” performance at Anfield and if Liverpool defies all the odds and wins this it will be the greatest comeback and a much bigger one than the “miracle in Istanbul”.
Can they reach the second successive Champions League final?
