But the report added that Liverpool have not confirmed if Virgil Van Dijk will miss the showdown against Barcelona or will play.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Klopp said: “The approach we will take is that we try to win the game, if that makes sense.

“But you cannot play against Barcelona and tell the world ‘Watch this’ and after 10 minutes we are level.

“You cannot win 3-0 in the first five minutes, even if you are 3-0 up, you haven't won it. We have to be ready to try for 95 minutes or even more,''.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Virgil Van Dijk praised Barcelona forward Lionel Messi for his performance against his side in the Champions League on Wednesday night, May 1.

Lionel Messi was superb for Barcelona at Nou Camp scoring a brace which condemned Liverpool to a 3-0 defeat in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal encounter.
