Overall Game Assessment
Although Liverpool dominated in possession 53-47%, Barcelona was able to execute offensively while locking down defensively. With 12 shots total, Barcelona's Louis Suarez and Lionel Messi were able to drive Liverpool back. Suarez putting in one while Messi piled on two more in the second half. It seems Barcelona may take off into the Champion's League final if they keep playing the way they are.
