BARCELONA showed their class by wishing Mo Salah a speedy recovery after learning he would miss their semi-final showdown.

Liverpool's odds of overturning a three-goal deficit at Anfield were dealt a huge blow with the news Salah is injured.

But instead of revelling in the blow to their rivals, Barcelona  paid tribute to the Egyptian sensation on Twitter.

The club posted: "Games like these are for world-class players. Get well soon!"

Salah, 26, suffered a head injury against Newcastle after colliding with goalkeeper Martin Dubravka's hip.

Physios treating the ace called for a stretcher and he was taken off in tears with his hands over his head.

Klopp has now confirmed the forward will play no part tomorrow night as he suffered a concussion.

Joining Salah in the Anfield medical room is Roberto Firmino, the striker also missing against Barcelona due to a muscle tear.

But Klopp did add that although the Brazilian is out for the rest of the season, Salah is expected to return for the final day of the season against Wolves.

Without two of their stars, few are giving the Reds a chance against Barca.

But Liverpool icon Kenny Dalglish still believes a comeback is possible after Klopp's side left Spain feeling hard done by after a strong performance.

The 68-year-old told The Sunday Post: "I do think the tie is still open, and there remains a glimmer of hope.
