Miracles do happen and Liverpool have just confirmed this in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League against Spanish giants Barcelona, overturning the latter’s massive advantage in the first leg and qualifying against all odds for the UEFA Champions League final.
Barcelona came to Anfield with a 3-0 advantage, but a 7th minute goal by David Origi and a rapid double by Georginio Wijnaldum in the second half cancelled Barcelona’s lead and unsettled them.
Then in the 79th minute, Origi scored his brace of the night following a cross by Trent Alexander-Armold to make the scoreline 4-0 and 4-3 aggregate, sending the Liverpool into the UEFA cup finals against either Ajax or fellow English team Tottenham Hotspurs..
Liverpool played without their hitman Mohamed Salah, who was injured last week. Also out was Brazilian Firmino.
With little expected from Liverpool, it was Barcelona, parading Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez that imploded at Anfield, in game watched by over 54,000 people, including former captain Steven Gerrard..
