Firmino and Salah are missing, Klopp turn his eyes on Shaqiri
In anticipation of official confirmation of the absence of Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the Champions League semi-final with Barcelona, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has already begun to think about the players who will replace them.
The German technician is forced to impersonate an attacking lineup to try a big downfall after losing 3-0 to Camp Nou.
Basically, Daniel Sturridge should make number 9, while for the role of Egyptian Salah will be placed between Origi and Shaqiri.
The Belgian striker, of Kenyan origin, looks more favored than the Albanian footballer. He scored the goal of winning Newcastle, still holding the “The Reds” for winning the title in the Premier League.
Liverpool needs at least 3 goals (and 11-meter win) to eliminate Barcelona and in this context there is not much tactical choice but to attack with all the artillery that is available. Even if it is not going to be titular, it seems inevitable Xherdan Shaqiri’s activation at least during the game, seeing the important absences in the offensive phase.
