Liverpool suffered a 3-0 defeat to FC Barcelona on Wednesday at Camp Nou in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal series.

Former Red Luis Suarez opened the scoring in the 27th minute, turning in Jordi Alba’s low ball from the left at the near post.

Lionel Messi added a second for the home team in the final quarter of the game by nudging into an open goal after Suarez’s initial attempt had came back off the crossbar.

The Argentina forward added another soon after when he found the top corner with a trademark free-kick from range.

Mohamed Salah almost reduced the arrears when he crashed a strike against the woodwork after substitute Roberto Firmino saw a shot cleared off the line, leaving Liverpool with a three-goal deficit to try and overturn in the return at Anfield in six days’ time.
