Liverpool match Barcelona's ticket price to subsidise own fans

Liverpool match Barcelona's ticket price to subsidise own fans

That would mean Manchester City have to drop points, but should their title charge fall short they still have a mouthwatering Champions League semi-finals tie against Barcelona to fall back on.

In response, the Merseyside club raised their ticket prices for Barcelona supporters travelling to Anfield to the same amount and will use the extra revenue to ensure Liverpool fans pay only 88 euros for the first leg.

Tottenham Hotspur play Ajax Amsterdam in the other semi-final with the final scheduled at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium in the Spanish capital on June 1. It is our second time in a row in the semis.

"They are a good team, they made it intense and the lads dug in and defended really well", said the England worldwide midfielder.

Liverpool, in particular, have made the most of signing players from the Saints and developing their talent even further.

"That is in my mind and that will be 100 percent on my mind when I wake up tomorrow and not Barcelona".

In Barcelona, they will now face a team on course to claim a 10th La Liga title in the last 15 years and winners of the Champions League four times since 2006. The strength coming from the stands made me shiver.

Unai Emery urges Arsenal to seize the moment at daunting Napoli
Alexandre Lacazette was rested for Arsenal's win at Watford on Monday and that suggests he may start ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubayemang up top.

He had hardly touched the ball during a Porto onslaught in the opening stages, sparked by a Jesus Corona shot just over the bar in the first minute. He scored a great goal [against Man Utd] and I think he will stay and be a success.

When asked about his goal, which was given offside before VAR intervened, Mane said: "To be honest, for me I was thinking it's offside and I thought I should just keep going".

"But over the last couple of seasons, with the teams that we have beaten in the Champions League, we should go there with confidence, no matter how tough it is going to be".

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling look set to win the main player of the year awards for 2018/19.

Trent Alexander-Arnold released Salah to run through and beat Iker Casillas on 65 minutes to make it 2-0, before Porto got their consolation shortly after when Militao headed in from an Alex Telles corner.

"We had our moments, not too many, but we scored the goal and we had a good chance".
