(Video) Robbo’s inch-perfect tackle on Lionel Messi in Liverpool’s area

At the time of writing, Liverpool are 1-0 down to Barcelona in Camp Nou.

Luis Suarez’s sublime finish from Jordi Alba’s left-footed assist put the home side in front, but they were not noticeably better than Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in the first-half.

Andy Robertson was our player of the first 45, bombing down the left with regularity – but largely keeping Lionel Messi at bay when the Argentine foraged on the flank too.

This particular tackle was a special moment, with the Scot timing his slide to perfection in order to thwart the onrushing no.10.

We’ll need this from Robbo on plenty more occasions if we’re to get through two legs against this terrific side with a positive result, of course.
