Overall Game Assessment
Liverpool did not show up today! FC Barcelona broke the spirit of Liverpool early with a great touch by Suarez to go up 1-0. The second half saw the wheels fall off for Liverpool. Nothing seemed to go right for them. Barca just poured it on. What a fitting way for Messi to get goal #600!
