With one of the greatest comeback in the history of Champions league, Liverpool defeated Spanish football club Barcelona on Tuesday. Liverpool defeated FC Barcelona 4-0 on Tuesday, overturning a three-goal first-leg shortage and advancing to their second successive final with a 4-3 aggregate victory.
Two goals each from stand-in forward Divock Origi and halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum shocked Lionel Messi and Barcelona after Liverpool performed full of passion, belief and determination.
Liverpool will play the winner of Wednesday's other semi-final between Ajax Amsterdam and Tottenham Hotspur, with Ajax leading 1-0 from the first leg in London.
Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said, “It was overwhelming. I would say it's impossible, playing against the best team in the world. Winning with a clean sheet, I don't know how the boys did it. It's unbelievable.”
Liverpool became only the third team in the history of the European Cup or Champions League to come from three goals down after the first leg of a semi-final and progress after Panathinaikos in 1970-71 and Barcelona themselves in 1985-86.
