Virgil Van Dijk says Liverpool are in for an “unbelievably tough” encounter with Barcelona but believes they can get a result in the Nou Camp. It is another huge week for the Reds, who remain in the Premier League title race with the relentless Manchester City, who have a one-point advantage heading into the final two Premier League matches.
Many were sceptical of Liverpool’s capacity to maintain a title challenge and a push for Champions League glory, but they have disproved all the doubters. They do however face a huge test on Wednesday night when they head to Barca for the semi-final first-leg.
“You definitely want to be in the title race and you definitely want to be in the semi-final, and hopefully you get through to the final,” said Van Dijk. “The situation is how it is and I said many times before, we have to enjoy it, show what we have been doing almost the whole season and keep working hard and never give up.
“I see what we have. I see the players we have, I see the management and the way we play football so it is not really a big surprise. “But you still have do it and we have to do it on Wednesday as well. It is going to be unbelievably tough. “You need to be ready for problems and we will be and hopefully we can get a good result or a result we can take with us back to Anfield and we are going to try everything to go through to the final.”
