A historic comeback at Anfield sends Liverpool to UCL Final

Wed, May. 8, 2019
CAIRO – 8 May 2019: Liverpool achieved the impossible on Tuesday night when they managed to defeat Barcelona 4-0 to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals for the second year in a row.

Liverpool bounced back after a 3-0 loss in Barcelona and won the tie despite the absence of their best strikers, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, for injury.

Divock Origi opened the score for the Reds after only six minutes when he followed Jordan Henderson’s shot to make the score 1-0 for the home team.

After the goal, Barcelona dominated the game and had three chances to score through Lionel Messi but he failed to find the target and the first half ended 1-0.

At the second half, the game took another direction when Georginio Wijnaldum replaced the injured Andrew Robertson.

Wijnaldum scored two goals in two minutes to make the score 3-0 and equalized the tie.

Barcelona players were in shock and their manager, Ernesto Valverde, replaced Philippe Coutinho with Nelson Semedo to control the game.

Origi scored the fourth goal after a trick corner kick from Trent Alexander Arnold to make the score 4-0.

Barcelona failed to create chances to score the goal they needed to win qualification to the final and failed to reach the final for the fourth consecutive year.
