Concise News had earlier reported that Liverpool was beaten 3-0 by Barcelona on Wednesday night, a day after Ajax defeated Tottenham in London. But Luis Suarez's opener was followed by a Lionel Messi double to tip the tie in Barca's favour.
Bartomeu added that he was still in favour of playing Spanish top flight games outside Spain, after his club withdrew from La Liga's proposed match between Barca and Girona in Miami last January, citing a "lack of consensus".
"He will not be ready for Tuesday and the rest we will see", said the German after watching his side return to the top-flight summit.
However, former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is expecting to see the Red Devils claim all three points when they travel to Huddersfield Town on Sunday looking to reverse what has been a awful run of form in recent weeks.
Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers: Denver will regain home-court edge
Portland led by as many as 10 points in the opening half but the Nuggets pulled in front 38-37 on Murray's running 3-pointer. In what should come as little surprise though, Nuggets head coach Mike Malone came to his star man's defense.
Liverpool also exchanged more passes than Barcelona (482-457), and ended with more attempts (14-11) and corners (5-3). It's going to be unusual for them coming here with a 3-0 advantage but they still have in their mind that it won't be over. However, Barcelona have kept clean sheets in their last two away Champions League matches.
On the morning after his side's 3-0 semi-final first-leg win over Liverpool, Bartomeu told the Guardian a major overhaul of the Champions League is not going to happen.
"How we caused them problems was outstanding and we controlled the game in the second half".
"He takes it and provides us the winning goal".
Tottenham, meanwhile, trail Ajax 1-0 from their first leg in London. For Spurs, meanwhile, a third-place finish is becoming increasingly likely given the abject refusal of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United to win any games. Liverpool couldn't of done that and it will be another advantage for Barcelona, especially as Liverpool's game wasn't until the evening.
