Messi will have 10 statues at renovated Camp Nou - Bartomeu

It tells me that they do not have enough quality in the squad.

This year, Lionel Messi played just over half of the minutes he could have in April while against Celta on Saturday, Valverde rested all 11 players that started the first leg against Liverpool. "Liverpool deserved much more than the 3-0 result, but we can also say that it could have been 4-0 or 5-0 at the very end".

Anfield will be rocking next week and Messi citing this is an indication that opposition teams know how formidable Liverpool are at home.

However, former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is expecting to see the Red Devils claim all three points when they travel to Huddersfield Town on Sunday looking to reverse what has been a awful run of form in recent weeks.

"When we came in, he was sitting in the dressing room and watching the game or had watched the game".

Naby Keita is to be assessed after suffering a groin injury during Liverpool's Champions League semi-final defeat to Barcelona at Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi doesn't believe Barcelona are already in the Champions League Final despite last night's comprehensive 3-0 win over Liverpool.

He said: "We saw how Liverpool manage games and the pace with which they play, and we cannot forget that we can't afford to feel extra confident".

The tournament runs from June 21 to July 19, with Guinea's first Group A game against Madagascar on June 22, leaving the midfielder plenty of time to recover.

"There are still 90 minutes to go and while we were able to score they could have done so too".

Messi has scored 600 goals in 683 games for Barcelona, a staggering record of 0.9 goals per game. William Hill's odds on Barcelona scoring in this match are 2/7 (1.28) and it's 43/20 (3.15) they win the match. In those 10 games, Liverpool conceded only the four home goals, two of those were in last season's semi-final on Merseyside against Roma.

The Argentine's goal made Liverpool the sixth English opponent he has scored against in the Champions League.
