Injury hits Liverpool Camp as Firmino is the latest player Ruled Out of Champions League Clash against Barcelona.
Roberto Firmino is set to miss the Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona on Tuesday due to a muscle injury after he came on in the closing stages of his side’s 3-0 defeat at Camp Nou in the first leg.
The Brazilian has been stellar for the reds this season as he was an integral part of Liverpool’s all round success this season scoring and assisting from an unusual position on the pitch.
The Striker may miss the rest of the season after manager Jurgen Klopp ruled the forward out of the meeting with Barca at Anfield and declined to comment on his status for the final match of the Premier League campaign.
“He will not be ready for Tuesday and the rest we will see,” said the German after watching his side return to the top-flight summit.
Firmino’s absence is a blow to Liverpool, who saw Mohamed Salah suffer a head injury during their vital 3-2 win at St James’ Park.
