Champions League: Fantastic Liverpool Stun Barcelona To Reach Final
Origi celebrates goal against Liverpool

Liverpool reached the final of Champions League on Tuesday after completing one of the greatest comebacks in football history, beating Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield and 4-3 on aggregate.

Looking to become only the third team in the competition’s history to come back from three goals down after the first leg of a semi-final, Liverpool took an early lead through Divock Origi’s tap in the 7th minute to give Anfield hope, before two goals in two second-half minutes brought them level.

Half-time substitute Georginio Wijnaldum first saw his low drive sneak past Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the 54th minute, and the Dutchman took the roof off Anfield as his placed header from Xherdan Shaqiri’s cross found the corner of Barca’s net in the 56th minute.

And the comeback was complete in bizarre and jaw-dropping fashion as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cheeky corner caught Barcelona off guard, allowing the unmarked Origi to turn home his second in the 79th minute, having played most of this season as a bit-part player.

The unprecedented and sublime comeback means Liverpool will play in their second successive Champions League final on June 1 in Madrid, facing either Ajax or Tottenham.
