Liverpool midfielder James Milner has hinted to local media and the club’s supporters that he believes his team can beat Barca as they prepare to travel to Camp Nou for semi-finals of Champions League.
“We can beat Barca but we know it will very tough,” Milner told reporters. “I’ve been there a couple of times in the knockout stages with City and not got the right result, so hopefully it is third time lucky for me.
“They are a strong team and it is a tough place to go but I don’t think they will have played too many teams with the style we play either. It will be difficult.
“They are a team full of great individual talent and a great side too. The Camp Nou is a fantastic stadium and a fantastic place to play with a great atmosphere. It will be very tough and we will have to be at our best but tough for them too.
“Over the last couple of seasons, with the teams we have beaten in the Champions League, we should go there with confidence no matter how tough it is going to be.
“I’m sure you can see in this year’s run and in games when things haven’t been going well that we have got the experience. We have been there before and know how to get results.”
