LIVE UPDATES: Barcelona vs Liverpool (Champions League semis)

Hello and good evening once again. A beautiful night awaits as two heavyweight clubs, Barcelona and Liverpool clash in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. A game termed by many as the final before the final.

Barcelona are chasing their first final since 2015 but appear revitalised by the form of Lionel Messi.

Can anyone stop him? Plenty seem to think Virgil van Dijk is the best man for it and it makes for a scintillating battle.

Liverpool want to reach back-to-back finals. The Premier League title race may be out of their hands but if they win three more games, they could pick up a different trophy.

Not bad, eh

The Nou Camp is one of the toughest places in world football to go. Barcelona are unbeaten in 31 Champions League home games.

But Liverpool seem to do pretty well there. They are the only English side to win away at Barcelona in European competition.

The last was a 2-1 victory in the 2006-07 Champions League and Liverpool have progressed from eight of their previous 10 semi-finals.

Hold on tight. This will be quite a ride. Game kicks off at 7PM GMT.
