What Philippe Coutinho has told Barcelona team-mates about Liverpool clash
Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has warned his side they need to make home advantage count against Liverpool before a ‘special’ trip to Anfield. The Catalans host Jurgen Klopp’s men on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou and travel to Anfield next Tuesday for the reverse leg.

Anfield’s experienced special European nights in the past and Coutinho has warned his team-mates to expect a ‘magnificent’ atmosphere on Merseyside.
‘I am really looking forward to playing in my first Champions League semifinal, and I want to do a good job,’ said Coutinho. ‘Returning to Anfield will be very special, because I was very happy at Liverpool. ‘The Champions Leaguue is our big objective and we have to have a strong mentality for these types of games.” ‘Liverpool are a side with a very strong mentality, above all at home. They area great side in attack and defence, so we will have to be alert. ‘They aren’t only about a strong attack. They have a great side and Anfield has a magnificent atmosphere.’
Coutinho, of course, is not the only former Liverpool player currently with Barcelona. Luis Suarez is set to feature against his former side for the first time since his departure from Anfield in 2014.
