Dragging into Champions League without two of its star players, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino, it has been the greatest comeback while many have given up the hope on Liverpool.
But never count Liverpool out especially in Anfield. Lionel Messi was powerless to stop Liverpool last night. Anyhow, Jurgen Klopp team went on to score 4 goals against Barcelona and won the semi-finals with 4-3 on aggregate.
Liverpool opened the scoring through Divock Origi in the 7th minute, he also scored the second goal in the 79th minute.
Antfield has something in its air that gives hope even in most tensed situations.
2005 UEFA Champions League final Liverpool returned to Atatürk Stadium in Istanbul against AC Milan and proceeded to win the trophy, they scored goals in the 54th and 56th minutes.
After Phillip Cocu in 2005, Georginio Wijnaldum has scored two goals in the 54th and 56th minutes. He is the second Dutch player to score two objectives in a Champions League semi-final or final.
…a truly remarkable TEAM performance. ✊

The entire game was too much. It was unbelievable. They played against perhaps the best team in the world. Winning is difficult but winning with a clean sheet, I don’t realize they did it. It’s incredible. Said Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp.
They will face either Tottenham or Ajax in Madrid on Saturday, 1 June.
