Liverpool produced one of the greatest comeback in champion league history to beat Barcelona 4-0 on Tuesday may 7th, overturning a three goal first-leg deficit and advancing to their second successive final with a 4-3 aggregate victory.
Two goals each from stand in forward Divock Origi and half time substitute Georginio Wijnaldum left lionel messi and Barcelona utterly got shocked after a Liverpool performance full of passion, belief and determination.
Liverpool became only the third team in the history of the European cup league to come from three goals down after the first leg of semi-final and progress after panathinaikos in 1970-71 and Barcelona themselves in 1985-86.
It was a night that will be remembered by the Liverpool fans alongside their fifth European cup win in Istanbul in 2005, when they came back from 3-0 down at halftime to win on penalties.
For Barcelona, who wen t out on away goals to AS Roma in the quarter-finals last year after winning the first-leg- 4-1, It was a bitter occasion that will raise many questions for coach Ernestor Valverde.
