Liverpool visit Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League 2018/19 semi-finals first leg this evening.
Barcelona are in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals for the first time since winning their fifth European title four seasons ago, although they have won only two of their last five contests at this stage.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have reached successive semi-finals and will be seeking to extend an unbeaten sequence at the Nou Camp.
While Barcelona have won their last two games at Anfield, Liverpool are unbeaten in away games against Barcelona, recording two wins and two draws on their four previous visits.
This is the teams’ ninth fixture, six of the previous eight having come in a six-year period between 2001 and 2007.
There has been little between the sides with three Liverpool wins and two for Barcelona, each team scoring six goals – although the English club have won all three two-legged contests on aggregate.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
