After losing 3-0 to Barcelona in the first of two legs during their semifinal Champions League match up, Liverpool needed to win by a four goal margin in order to avoid elimination and advance. With Barcelona being arguably the most talented team in the world and Liverpool missing two of their most important players in Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino, many pundits had completely written of the English side.
That just made Tuesday’s result all the more shocking. Liverpool stunned the world, smacking Barcelona with a 4-0 victory and advancing to the Champions League Final for the second straight year 4-3 on aggregate. Good luck in the finals boys, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”!
