Confirmed! Liverpool will miss two key players Champions League semi-final vs Barcelona

Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will miss Liverpool’s crucial Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona.

The Egyptian was stretchered off during Saturday evening’s 3-2 win at Newcastle with an apparent head injury.

Salah, Liverpool’s top scorer this season with 26 goals, hurt his head in a nasty collision with Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka on Saturday.

He has since undergone tests to determine whether he is suffering from a concussion – an injury that would see him ruled out of the Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona, and most likely Sunday’s meeting with Wolves too.

The No.9 was absent from the Reds’ squad for Saturday’s 3-2 victory over Newcastle United due to the muscular injury he sustained in training last week.

During his post-match press conference at St. James’ Park, Jürgen Klopp confirmed that Firmino won’t be fit for the Champions League semi-final second leg.

“He will not be ready for Tuesday and the rest we will see,” said the boss.
