Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has insisted his side won’t fall apart like Barcelona did, when they take on Roma in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final clash.
The Reds travel to the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday with Barcelona’s quarter-final capitulation in mind, after Roma came back from a 4-1 first-leg defeat to win the tie on the away goals rule.
“Now we have to work again in Rome. That’s no problem. There would have been work for us to do if we’d won 5-0 because Roma would have tried everything to strike back anyway.
“And what I learned tonight is that we can win the second game as well, even when it will be different. Roma need to score goals against us. I said it a few times and it should not sound like a warning or whatever, but we are not Barcelona.
“They are one of the two or three best teams in the world and they won so many things in the last few years. We didn’t.
“So we will fight with all we have for that result again. It’s much better than I could have expected before the game, but now in the moment of course I feel the two goals we conceded still,” Klopp told the media on Tuesday night.
