Liverpool vs. Cardiff City

Lionel Messi already deserves to lift a sixth Ballon d'Or regardless of whether he wins the Champions League with Barcelona or not, according to former Brazil striker Rivaldo.

The Reds are also at the top of the Premier League table with a two-point lead over Manchester City, albeit playing a game more than the defending champions at the moment. Jurgen's done a fabulous job because there were one or two weaknesses and he's filled those weaknesses with top quality players.

Messi's Blaugrana side remain in European competition after seeing off Manchester United and are now on course to secure another La Liga title, while a Copa del Rey final against Valencia also lies in wait.

"It's a very attractive game for them, for us and for the public".

"The dressing room as you can imagine was elated after the Brighton game", he said.

Jose Mourinho's advice is pretty simple and straight forward but we don't think Jurgen Klopp will be paying too much attention simply because the German does not function in that manner.

The five nations at the bottom of the list are Vietnam, China, Eritrea, North Korea and Turkmenistan , in that order. Jamaica has dropped two places from sixth in 2018 to eighth this year in the annual global press freedom index .

The team reached the final last season after they knocked out Roma at the semi-final but they lost the title to Real Madrid.

"I love the situation we are in, it's really good, but of course we have to prove it every day and every game".

The last time Liverpool visited Cardiff in the Premier League they put six goals past the Welsh side, and Warnock believes it is crucial they remain solid defensively to avoid another heavy defeat. We just want to perform well.

"We just want to give a good performance and not get a battering really".

Messi's most recent exploits against English opposition involved a bloodied nose and two goals- one magnificent, the other less so- over two legs against Manchester United.

Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion gave 18th-placed Cardiff a lift in their relegation battle as they are now just two points adrift of the safety zone. Watching them you immediately see how physically strong they are and they have shown they can cause teams problems.
