When we talk about comebacks, this match will forever be cemented as one of the greatest ones. The Reds made it to the UEFA Champions League finals for the second consecutive year after remarkably overturning the 3-0 first-leg deficit to win 4-3 on aggregate.
With key players like Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino unable to play, it was up to the rest of the team to make this one count. Divock Origi and halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum’s goals shattered FCB’s defence and left one of the world’s greatest football players Lionel Messi stunned to the bone.
The last whistle left the whole stadium roaring, while FCB players paced around the field with their head down in disbelief. Anfield stadium was filled with a sea of red flags and scarves waving in the air, while “You’ll Never Walk Alone” echoed throughout.
Liverpool fans are calling this one of the greatest nights in Liverpool history and we completely agree with them.
