The Reds needed a miracle to reach the final, which they got.

In this match, Jurgen Klopp did not have his two stars in the front line, Mohammad Salah and Roberto Firmino. On the other hand, Ernesto Valverde was present at Anfield with full force. Divock Origi’s 7th-minute goal could have been a little hope for the Reds.

At the beginning of the second half, Klopp replaced Andrew Robertson with Georginio Wijnaldum. Wijnaldum scored two goals for Liverpool in the 54th and 56th minutes, and there was Anfield. The realm of miracles.

With ten minutes left to the end of 90 minutes, Divock Origi completed the comeback. Liverpool won 4-0 dramatically and went to the final, and became the champion.

This match was one of the most iconic Champions League matches. The roar of Liverpool fans after scoring the fourth goal will never be forgotten. Liverpool’s 19-year-old fullback Trent Alexander Arnold was the star of the game.

Was this the best match between Barcelona vs Liverpool? Obviously.
