One of the focal points of the Uefa Champions League semi-final between Barcelona and Liverpool was the running duel between Luis Suarez and Andy Robertson.

The pair had clashed at Camp Nou last Wednesday, with Suarez on target in a 3-0 win for Barca, and they continued their personal battle at Anfield on Tuesday.

Left-back Robertson had to go off injured at half time following a collision with former Liverpool player Suarez in which the Uruguayan appeared to kick out at Robertson off the ball.

But it was the Scottish defender who had the last laugh as Liverpool completed a stunning comeback to win the second leg 4-0 and reach the final 4-3 on aggregate.

Robertson, 25, was quick to point out after the match who will be going to the final in Madrid on June 1.

When asked by an interviewer about his running battle with Suarez, Robertson replied: "Who's going to the final?"

Suarez for his part focused on Barcelona's embarrassment of blowing a three-goal first-leg lead for the second successive season, having gone out to Roma 12 months ago on away goals.

"We have to do a lot of self criticism because this is the second time that the same thing has happened to us. We cannot commit the same mistake two years in a row, there are many things we need to consider and think about," Suarez said.
