Liverpool stuns Barcelona to advance to Champions League final

Jurgen Klopp quote 2019

The Reds need to overcome the 3-0 achieved by Barcelona in the first leg if they want to reach the final for the second year in a row.

"Obviously we've got two of our main goalscorers out, but it also presents an opportunity for some of the other lads to come in, make a name for themselves and make themselves heroes", said Alexander-Arnold.

In a truly remarkable - and intense - game not only did Liverpool erase that disadvantage inside 56 minutes, they went on to score a victor inside 90 minutes and, remarkably, kept Lionel Messi quiet.

The forward who also grabbed a key victor at the weekend in the Premier League against Newcastle also got the decisive goal that saw Barcelona knocked out, 11 minutes from the end.

By which scoreline did the Reds win that game?

Liverpool have blown plenty of sides away in early bursts under Klopp, most notably hitting three inside the first half-hour at Anfield against Manchester City in last season's Champions League quarter-final.

Even former rival Jose Mourinho could only tip his cap towards Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp while speaking as a pundit for beIn Sports.

They started brightly, scoring after a matter of minutes through striker Divock Origi.

Here's hoping anyone who bet on Country House didn't immediately throw their ticket away when he initially came in second. The Associated Press reported that Omaha Beach , who just turned 3 in April, would undergo surgery in Kentucky last week.

Suarez will be joined by Messi and Philippe Coutinho on his return to Liverpool after a £142 million ($186 million) move to Barca past year.

"When you have a collapse of this nature", Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said, "we will have a few awful days ahead".

"We made it more hard, so we didn't really think about it to be 100 per cent honest".

Whether that comes off is still in the balance, but what is for certain is that they will now travel to Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium on June 1 for a chance to win a sixth European title against one of either Tottenham Hotspur or Ajax.

A goal was needed to really give a shaken Barca team the jitters and it arrived after seven minutes, with Origi tapping into an empty net after goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen parried a shot by Jordan Henderson.

Origi ensured Liverpool led 1-0 at the break before Wijnaldum's quick-fire double levelled the tie on aggregate.

Few players in world football are more frustrating for opposing fans and players than Barcelona's Luis Suarez.

It was mayhem inside Anfield, the scene of so many of these famous fightbacks.
