Lionel Messi explains why Barcelona collapsed against Liverpool in Champions League horror

Barcelona blew a 3-0 lead in the second leg of their semi-final tie with the Reds.

Lionel Messi has opened up on Barcelona’s monumental Champions League collapse against Liverpool last season.

The Spanish giants blew a three-goal lead in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final tie at Anfield.

Liverpool ran out 4-0 winners to reach the final of Europe’s elite club competition, which they went on to win 2-0.

Barca’s shocking elimination ramped the pressure on manager Ernesto Valverde, who oversaw the Spanish champions’ quarter-final collapse against Roma in the 2017-18 season.
