Virgil van Dijk says he still believes Liverpool can turn around their Champions League semi-final against Barcelona after a 3-0 defeat in the Nou Camp on Tuesday.
The Dutch defender has marshalled the Reds defence superbly all season, but was powerless to stop Lionel Messi, the Argentine scoring twice in yet another fine performance for the Catalan club.
Van Dijk lamented his team’s failure to score an away goal, but said the task facing Liverpool is not insurmountable.
“3-0 sounds very bad,” said Van Dijk. “It sounds like we had a proper shocker, but we created big chances against them and should have scored at least one.
“Then it would be a totally different feeling to what we have now, but we have to take it how it is.
“I know it’s going to be very tough to come to Anfield. We all have to believe, I will definitely believe, so we’ll see.”
