Barcelona is very close to the Champions League final after the convincing victory over Liverpool by 3:0. Catalonia`s senior coach Ernesto Valverde has not missed to lighten Lionel Messi, who scored two of the goals, but warned that Anfield`s revenge would not be easy.
`In such games, each of the teams tries to impose their own way of playing, sometimes the rival dominates and you have to be able to handle it. ` It was difficult, but we scored three goals and we hope we will not lose our lead in the rematch. `We have a three-goal lead after the first quarter, but we`re eliminated, the intrigue is alive, and Liverpool will make our lives difficult, ` said Valverde, recalling the loss of 0:3from Roma.


`We made some adjustments on the break that helped us in the second half I never think of the score 1:1 can also be a good result, it all depends on the course of the game It was a great day to win, that we did, `Barca`s mentor continued.
`We know what Messi is capable of, but he does not stop astonishing us, Leo is our captain, he is the man who changes the rhythm of the game, and his moves have resolved the game again today and led us to victory. ` The direct free kick was far from the doorand I did not know if Messi was going to shoot, I have no idea how he does it, but he always manages to shine right when we need it the most. `Leo puts a sense of fear in our opponents, ` Valverde said.
