Liverpool Beat Barcelona 4 - 0 To Qualify For Champions League Final

Jurgen Klopp Barcelona PS

Jurgen Klopp Barcelona PS

Barcelona take a 3-0 advantage to Anfield for the second leg of their Champions League semi final and Ernesto Valverde is trusting the same 11 players who started that first leg victory. Lionel Messi had inspired the Spanish club to a healthy 3-0 lead, but they were second best all over the pitch on Tuesday night.

"Liverpool have been smarter than us, they were faster".

Some fans also noted that Suarez actually played quite a significant part in Liverpool's win.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool): Two goals apiece for Wijnaldum and Origi, but Alexander-Arnold gets the nod for his moment of brilliance in the build-up to the fourth goal.

Fowler's fellow former Reds striker Owen praised Klopp's men for their incredible season, which could yet culminate in Champions League glory for the first time since 2005.

But the Belgian has made a habit of scoring important goals in Liverpool's challenge for a first Premier League title in 29 years and he had his first ever in the Champions League on seven minutes on the rebound after Marc-Andre ter Stegen had denied Jordan Henderson's purposeful burst from midfield.

"It's only football that can do this".

Barack Obama gave the award in 2014 to Charlie Sifford, the first African-American golfer to play on the PGA Tour . But Rush Limbaugh, who recently played with the President, says it's all in good fun.

Wijnaldum said his team showed "everything is possible in football" after the comeback to reach their second consecutive Champions League final.

Here's how social media reacted to the latest - and maybe most improbable - in a long line of magical European nights at Anfield.

"You can not fail to have respect for this stadium when you come here", he said.

However, the Argentine and his fellow playmakers found their creative power stymied by a brilliant, high-intensity performance from Jurgen Klopp's injury-blighted Reds, who still mustered the vital number of goals to win on aggregate despite missing Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino through injury.

In his post-match interview, the German let his emotions get the better of him calling the players "intelligent fucking giants" admitting that he would take the fine for the language.

Former Liverpool winger Luis Garcia joined the chorus of approval for his old team's heroics.

The result means that they have now been eliminated at the penultimate stage in three of their last four Champions League semi-final ties.
