Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists that the upcoming visit to Camp Nou holds no fear for his side ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League showdown with Barcelona.
The German manager does not believe in the famous stadium’s mystique and promised Liverpool, who went to Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena in the round of 16 with the tie level and won to advance, would not be overawed by the occasion.
“The Camp Nou is just a stadium. It is pretty big, but it is no temple of football,” the German fired to DAZN.
“It had to arrive at some point. You see the other teams who have a bad time when they play there and now we will experience it. Although of course we hope to play well.”
Despite his confidence in the team, Klopp nevertheless admitted that Liverpool would start the semi-final tie as slight underdogs.
