The Blaugrana are releasing a documentary titled ‘Matchday’, which offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into key matches during the 2018/19 campaign.
And one of the episodes – Episode 7, according to Marca, which is titled ‘The eighteen-day storm’ – explores that night at Anfield.
Ernesto Valverde’s side headed to Merseyside with a 3-0 lead but were stunned by Liverpool’s incredible comeback.
Divock Origi’s winner in the 79th minute sealed their fate and in a recently-released trailer, we see how Gerard Pique’s wife Shakira reacted to the capitulation.

Now, footage has emerged of Barcelona’s players as they sit shell-shocked in the dressing room at full-time.
Not a single word is spoken during the 45-second clip. The silence is eerie.
One shot of Philippe Coutinho, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic looking crestfallen sums it up. Nobody can believe what has happened.
This documentary is going to be must-watch stuff.
In the mini-trailer, we see popstar Shakira as she watches the semi-final second leg with her children.
Just before Liverpool’s third goal, her son says: “If it stays like this, it doesn’t matter. We’ll go through to the final.”
But seconds later, Georginio Wijnaldum makes it 3-3.
Shakira then screams: “No, I can’t believe it! No!”
Liverpool, of course, went on to clinch their sixth European title while Barcelona were left to stew on one of the biggest collapses on Champions League history.
The ‘Matchday’ documentary consists of eight episodes, all approximately 45 minutes in length, and are centred around key matches in the previous season.
As well as the Liverpool defeat, we get to see the 5-1 win over Real Madrid in October 2018 and the defeat in the Copa del Rey final to Valencia.
