Klopp, who also took Borussia Dortmund to the 2013 final, added: “I would say a draw would not be the worst result in the world, not that we go for it, but it would be OK.
“So many people came to Barcelona and had a plan and in the end they got a proper knock.”
Liverpool are fighting for a first domestic league triumph in 29 years, sitting a point behind Manchester City with two games to play.
However, even with Liverpool relying on City dropping points in order to win the Premier League, Klopp would not be drawn on whether the Champions League represented his side’s best chance of winning a trophy this season.
“We still have to play against Barcelona,” he said.
“We have a chance in both these competitions, but we have to play these games. I never understand when people think a game is won or lost before it is played.
“At the moment, I do not need to know which is the better chance for us to win. We will try to play our best football, then we will see what we can get from it.
“When we go home, we will not be playing against City, we will be playing against Newcastle. But nobody has to think about that game tomorrow, because it would be a massive mistake to play Barcelona with 15% or 20% of your mind on Newcastle.”
