Steven Gerrard makes Champions League prediction about Liverpool FC
Steven Gerrard rates Liverpool FC's hopes of winning the Champions League this season
Steven Gerrard says Liverpool FC have a great chance of winning the Champions League this season after their victory over Manchester City on Tuesday night.
The Reds booked their place in the semi-finals of Europe’s elite club competition for the first time in a decade thanks to a 2-1 win over Pep Guardiola’s men at The Etihad.
Goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in the second half at The Etihad wrapped up the win for Jurgen Klopp’s men after Gabriel Jesus had given the home side the lead early on.
Liverpool FC managed to secure an impressive 5-1 aggregate victory over the Citizens to secure their place in the last four.
And former Liverpool FC captain Gerrard feels that the Reds should be confident of being able to go all the way and win the competition for the first time since 2005.
Speaking to BT Sport immediately after Tuesday night’s game, Gerrard said: “Unbelievable. There’s a feeling amongst the Liverpool supporters. They’re very confident.
“They believe in this manager and they think the team’s growing. They believe that they’ve got a chance of going all the way [in the Champions League] – and so do I.
“I think Barcelona going out tonight should give them confidence. Over the two legs, beating at top side like City, they should be on a big wave now.”
Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday evening when they host Bournemouth at Anfield.
The Reds, who are currently in third place in the Premier League table, are set to discover their opponents in the Champions League semi-finals when the draw takes place on Friday.
