The only reason it's even close for Liverpool is that they've won the CL somewhat recently (2005) and haven't won the league in like 30 years. Almost any other team would vastly prefer the Champions League.

Barcelona's coach won the league both years he's been in charge and he very well might get fired over the summer.

I'm personally somewhat torn. The CL, like any tournament, is subject to a lot of luck while the league usually picks the best team in the end. But the current prestige level is far in support of the CL. I would guess most supporters would probably trade 3-5 league titles for a CL title. I'd like to hear other opinions on this though.
