Ex-Man United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed his prediction ahead of tonight’s UCL semi-final reverse leg tie between Liverpool and Barcelona at Anfield.
According to The Mirror, the Portuguese tactician, who is still out of work since quitting Old Trafford mid-December, believes Mohamed Salah's late miss during the clash at Camp Nou could end Jurgen Klopp's side quest to play in back-to-back UCL final next month.
"When the result was 2-0, I was still thinking it's open," Mourinho the pundit said.
"When they missed that late chance for the 3-1, I would say open, but 3-0 is 3-0.
"I know that Liverpool at Anfield is really hard, the team is good, but if Barcelona score one goal, they have to concede five.

"I think it's too much and I think the team (Barcelona) is with that appetite. I think Messi is dragging everybody with him for that appetite to make it happen. I think Barcelona has it."
