Mou hints one comeback in UCL semis

Mourinho makes bold predictions ahead of UEFA Champions League semis

The Special One shared his views before EPL sides Liverpool and Tottenham attempt to fight back from their first leg losses in the semi-finals.

Jose Mourinho may not be involved in the deciding stages of the UEFA Champions League, but he surely has some insight on what could happen between Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Speaking in his role as a TV pundit for beIN Sports, the Special One analyzed the possible outcome of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, hinting that only one of the English teams still involved in the competition will be able to pull off a comeback.

For starters, Mourinho took a closer look at the tie between Liverpool and Barcelona. The Special One admitted that the Reds could be able to pull off a comeback under normal circumstances, but their chances of doing so without Mohamed Salah are slim, to say the least.

"I know that Liverpool at Anfield is really hard, the team is good, but if Barcelona score one goal, they have to concede five. I think it's too much and I think the team (Barcelona) is with that appetite. When the result was 2-0, I was thinking it's open. When they missed that late chance for the 3-1, I would say open, but 3-0 is 3-0," Mourinho said.

Then, Mourinho shared his views on the game between Ajax and Tottenham, which is where Pochettino's men could pull off a comeback.

"Looking at the history of Champions League, Ajax are better away than at home. They have their style of play at home, but so do Tottenham, and I think Tottenham knows that they also can progress," Mourinho said.

Last, but not least, The Special One named one player that could be able to change the tie single-handedly.

"To play without Harry Kane is difficult, to play without Kane and Heung-Min Son at the same time is even more difficult, and next time at least Son is there. He is an aggressive player, he's fast, he has transitions and he can hurt people, so the game is open," Mourinho concluded.
