In spite of the arreones initial of the Liverpool, the FC Barcelona was growing with the step of the minutes and attained to balance the situation. In fact, it could have empatado before the rest if Messi, Coutinho and Jordi Alba had fine-tuned the puntería
It can not say that the FC Barcelona began too enchufado the party against the Liverpool, or at least to the same level of intensity that the 'reds' during the first chamber of hour of game. Divock Origi Took advantage of an error of Jordi Alba to the seven minutes to annotate the first goal, and 'The Kop' jaleó to his so that they looked for incesantemente the goal of Ter Stegen.
Like this it was, with the ones of Klopp leaving arrive and generating danger with Sadio Mané, Shaqiri and company. With the step of the minutes, however, the FC Barcelona attained recomponerse and was winning terrain and possession in the centre of the field. Little by little, the culés increased the rhythm and were entonando to measure that combined in all the lines, of the defence to the centre of the field and from here to the attack.
In fact, the position advanced of the Liverpool allowed to the Barcelona have of some contragolpes dangerous. Coutinho, Leo Messi -in several occasions- and Jordi Alba could empatar the party before the rest, but Alisson kept firm and to the blaugrana was missing them something of puntería and determination to the hour to define.
The opportunities visitors, this yes, served of warning for the Liverpool and left clear to the 'reds' that, what further up went to try trace back the eliminatory, more danger would run to fit a goal of the FC Barcelona.
With Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and company in the field, the mission of the FC Barcelona was clear: hold to the maximum the tackled offensives of the Liverpool and go out fast to the contragolpe. A strategic plan that usually is the one who practise him to the culés in the Camp Nou, but that in Anfield was necessary to give a definite hit to the eliminatory.
Proof of resistance for the FC Barcelona
Precisely the second time began like this, with the Liverpool attacking -Go Dijk starred a shot repelled by the defence culé- and with the Barcelona going out fast to attack, with Jordi Alba like a bullet by the left band. After it sucedido in the first time, and of the integrity showed by the Barça to measure that happened the minutes, begin the second act to the maximum level of intensity was basic for the Barça. Valverde Knew it, and like this transmitted it to him to his... But the second time also was a torture.
