Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona remembered: Divock Origi's goal is still even better with Titanic music

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

May 7, 2019 is a date that Liverpool fans will never forget.

The night of their incredible comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League ranks very close to the top of the club’s list of memorable European nights.

Jurgen Klopp’s needed to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg of their semi-final clash against Lionel Messi and Barcelona.

And in front of a raucous Anfield crowd, they produced a miracle with three second half goals to win 4-0.

Divock Origi scored Liverpool‘s fourth goal from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s quick corner, leaving Barcelona completely stunned.

And a year on, his goal is STILL even better with Titanic music.

Come on, you can’t deny that the dulcet tones of Celine Dion add to the occasion.

It was Origi’s second goal of the game and he would also score in the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the final, too.

The Belgian striker recently spoke to Liverpool’s official website about his iconic goal, revealing what he saw before Alexander-Arnold’s corner was taken.

“I saw a ball on the pitch and I wanted to give it back to the ballboy, so when I did that I was walking back but people took some time to come into position so automatically I was looking at who was taking the corner because depending on that it changes my positioning,” Origi said.

“When I was looking I could see Trent looking up and I think we made brief eye contact and I could see that he was going to do something instinctively, so when he whipped that ball in I looked up before I could kick the ball and I saw that Pique and Ter Stegen were more in the middle and the left side was open.


“It was quite a hard shot and I was just happy!

“When it went in, it happened so quick. Even mentally to realise it takes a while and it was a key moment.”
