Liverpool stun Barcelona 4-0, qualify for Champions League final
Liverpool booked their place in the final following an incredible 4-0 win over Barcelona on Tuesday night their second consecutive Champions League final.
Jürgen Klopp’s remarkable team achieved what many considered impossible courtesy of two goals apiece from Divock Origi and halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum left Lionel Messi and Barcelona utterly shell-shocked by a Liverpool performance full of passion, belief and determination.
The Reds came into the second leg of their semi-final trailing 3-0 from the game at the Nou Camp.
Liverpool, without two thirds of their strike force with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino injured, took a seventh-minute lead when a poor headed clearance from Jordi Alba fell at the feet of Jordan Henderson, who burst goalwards.
Liverpool will contest a second successive Champions League final, facing the winners of the other semi-final between Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid on June 1.
Liverpool become 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.
