    If I relied on these comments alone, I would guess that Barcelona was the better team. For years I have been hearing that the EPL was the best league in the world....but the records in the UCL and UEL show that La Liga has dominated Europe for at least the last 10 years. However, based on the fact that the EPL had 4 teams in the final 8, it seems they might be becoming the best least in Europe. Which means that Liverpool is a formidable team because they are the #1 team in the EPL.

    It is better to have strongest opponent in the 2 leg tie game for Liverpool. Because they have second chance to correct the first one. Though barca was the favourite for the Pundit but I can see LFC go through for this one.

      Anyway let we don't judge early ..everything can happen in football
      At the end winner deserves to be in the final either Barca or YNWA
      We still has hope and won't give up till last minute
      BARCELONA is the best team in his era for sure and absolutely the home match will be so tough but But it's worth trying
      We wish for all the best
      Messi has proven he is "GREAT OF ALL TIMES"

      ȘΘɴ Θʃ τħε ɖεȘεરτ trust me if Burnley and Spurs could score at Anfield I’m sure it won’t be that hard for Barcelona either before this season we hadn’t really won at Old Trafford and look what happened plus you never know with Messi

      I know my friend
      Barcelona won't score any goal in the Anfield
      I believe Redz will pass through Braca even if it's difficult now
      But let we hope...I am a YNWA fan
      So, don't blame me :)

    My impression of the Latin leagues, is that, between themselves, they have their own stile of playing. To me, they are all dribblers. Not much care in passing. It’s like watching a Matador in a bull ring. But when they play against a British league or a Germane league, they are lost. There is no forgiveness. For example, (some people may hate me) but, The Italian Leagues are always one man forward, and nine defenders. Scores are either 0-0 Or omg 1-0. And the “magic water” is always a must. It’s for the guy who throws himself on the ground crying murder. Sorry but the best leagues in the world is Germany and England. It’s a pleasure to watch them and there are no fouls every 5 minutes. HEY, Just my opinion.

    I always get drawn in because of the video titles. This channel never dissapoints me--the worst pundits & analysis show, ever. They are so into themselves, and give little real insight.

    Messi is not what he used to be. Man U wasnt a real test for barca and Jurgen Klopp has never lost a 2-legged European matchup, second game is in Anfield, Liverpool will not win the premier league. All these factors put together mean that Liverpool will beat Barca.

    You guys not even what appened last champions league. Liverpool were underdogs and they were in finals. You forgot so first and now you see Messi. I am sure Liverpool will win against Barcelona both home and away. They will meet Ajax and Ajax will Loose as they wait for the next round.

    Coming from a Barcelona fan, if Ajax wins the champions aganist barca i would not mind. They are a group of incedible players who pressure and play till the final moments of the game. There style of play is just as equal to barca and each of Ajaxs players now how to move and play their positions. They are a dangerous team do not cut them short.

    Absolutely amazing quarter finals, leading into bloody gorgeous semi finals. Whatever happens, the finalists will deserve to be there, the winner will deserve to win, and the five remaining matches should all be absolute corkers. Good luck to Ajax, Tottenham, Barcelona and Liverpool.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that Barcelona needs to win this at Camp Nou with a clean sheet preferably. 3-0 or more ideally.
    Anfield is going to be a fortress that’s gonna put so much outside pressure on Suarez and Coutinho.

      The atmosphere really is that twelfth man, isn't it? I've never heard an away stand as loud as I did watching the Juventus/Ajax game. The Dutch lads were on something that night.

    Barcelona vs Liverpool is a semi-final representing two teams with the most thrilling and famous club-anthems. Ajax vs Tottenham is a beautiful fixture between the two not-meant-for-the-semi-final-clubs.
    Hope it's going to be FC Barcelona vs AFC Ajax, but may the best of those four teams get through to the final. This season has already been astonishing and breathtaking exciting.

      I'm a Liverpool fan, so obviously I'm going to want them to win, but having said that, there's no shame in losing to any of the three teams left. Good luck to Ajax, Barcelona and Tottenham. You'll need it. 😝
