Liverpool beat Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to reach Champions League final

Liverpool v Barcelona - UEFA Champions League Semi Final: Second Leg

Liverpool are through to the Champions League final after completing one of the most remarkable comebacks in their 126-year history against Barcelona.

The Reds, spurred on by their vocal home supporters at Anfield, were 3-0 down from the first leg but came back to win Wednesday night’s second leg 4-0.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were without Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino but dramatically reached the final thanks to a brace each from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Barcelona spurned several chances to score - and probably should even have been in front midway through the first half - and they were made to pay after the break by super-sub Wijnaldum.

The Dutch midfielder scored two goals in the 54th and 56th minutes to turn this semi-final tie on its head.

Subsequently, it’s Liverpool who will face the winners of Wednesday’s semi-final second leg between Ajax and Tottenham at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on June 1.

Barcelona only have themselves to blame for the first goal, scored by Origi following a poor Jordi Alba mistake.

Watch it here…

Without that early goal, Liverpool may not have gone on to win the match.

Wijnaldum then made it 2-0...

Before netting his second of the night - and Liverpool's third - moments later....

Liverpool's fourth goal, scored with 10 minutes left on the clock, came after some brilliant quick-thinking by Trent Alexander-Arnold, whose corner found Origi.

The striker, who scored the winning goal against Newcastle United to keep the Reds' Premier League title hopes alive, turned the ball home past Marc-Andre ter Stegen from close range.

Watch it here...

Messi's face after that goal said it all...

An extraordinary night for the Reds.

Klopp is a miracle worker.
