The semi-final stage of the ongoing UEFA Champions League campaign is upon us with Ajax facing Spurs at the New Tottenham Stadium and Liverpool traveling to Barcelona. Both these ties are lip-smacking, but it’s the Barca-Liverpool tie that is the clash of the titans, as two unstoppable forces face-off in Catalonia for the first leg.
Extremely difficult to pick a clear winner in this one, every factor will come in handy to give Barca an edge over the visitors. And with undying, unflinching support from the Barca fans, Liverpool can expect to be thwarted by the Nou Camp majority.
What Barcelona have planned in this regard for their game against Liverpool in the Champions League is absolutely spectacular.
A video has surfaced online which gives the footballing world an idea of what Liverpool can expect at the Camp Nou. Barca have planned a mosaic around the stadium as they welcome Liverpool to the Camp Nou for their CL semi-final first leg clash on the 2nd of May.
The animation shows the entire stadium bathed in the traditional colors of the Catalan club, with blue and red rings going around the stadium and a series of red and yellow verticals on the far ends along the length of the stadium.
The one side of the stadium is set to feature the message, “Ready to color Europe”, in yellow, in what is sizing up to be a grand display of support from the fans for the home side.
The tifo is going to be executed by providing fans with appropriately colored cards that when held up in unison, will actualize this marvel.
Needless to say, this mosaic from the Barca faithful is sure to send shivers down the spines of the Liverpool players. How will Liverpool cope with the pressure, with 95000 odd Barca fans, chanting and creating an unnerving atmosphere, and this mosaic masterpiece spearheading the Barca 12th man?
