Champions League: Barcelona vs Liverpool

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will wait until the day of the game to assess whether Roberto Firmino is fit to play in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final first leg in Barcelona.

The Brazilian forward, 27, missed the Premier League win over Huddersfield on Friday with a muscle tear.

Klopp says Firmino's recovery "looks good so far" and he has until lunchtime on Wednesday to prove his fitness.

"We all knew from the beginning it would be a race," said the Anfield boss, whose team are vying with Manchester City for the Premier League title.

"We don't have to make a decision today because there's no game today, we can wait.

"I have to make that decision after lunchtime tomorrow."

Barcelona sealed their 26th La Liga title with a 1-0 win over Levante on Sunday.
