players were kept awake the night before their second-leg fixture against Liverpool at on Tuesday night.

Ernesto Valverde's side hold a 3-0 lead from the first-leg at Camp Nou last week as they look to be in pole position for a place in the final.

The Barcelona squad, many of whom were rested at the weekend, made their way to Liverpool from Catalonia on Monday afternoon ahead of the decisive semi-final .

Valverde led his team out at Anfield for a training session soon after arrival before the squad returned to their team hotel, The Hilton in Liverpool city centre.

If the players were hoping for a peaceful night's sleep in preparation of the game, they were sorely mistaken.

In videos surfacing social media, a Liverpool fan sets off a barrage of fireworks outside the hotel in what is assumed to be in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The Reds are extremely unlikely to overturn the 3-0 deficit from the first-leg, however some supporters are evidently trying to do their part to give Jurgen Klopp's side an unexpected advantage.
