Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has tipped Liverpool to lift the Champions League trophy this season.
Liverpool stormed to a 2-0 lead over Porto in the first leg of their quarter-final last week and will come up against Barcelona, should they finish the job in Portugal on Wednesday evening.
Though Ferdinand watched Barca dispatch United with ease at the Nou Camp, he is confident Liverpool have enough attacking weapons to see off Ernesto Valverde’s side if they meet in the final four.
“I think [Jurgen] Klopp will look at those first ten minutes [of United against Barcelona] in this game today because, listen, if [Sadio] Mane, [Mohamed] Salah and [Roberto] Firmino go through there I’m expecting a different turnout on those occasions.
“I think they score those chances. I think that game could be set up perfectly for Liverpool because if they play on the counter-attack, they’re an energetic team, they have a physicality which is different to this Man United team. I think they’ll cause more problems to this Barcelona team.
“But, saying that, they’ve got Messi and how you prepare for him… we don’t know,” he told BT Sport.
