▶ Liverpool headed back to the Champions League final after 4-0 rout of Barcelona [2019/05/08   ]

Liverpool needed a perfect performance to overcome a 3-0 aggregate deficit against Lionel Messi and Barcelona in Tuesday’s Champions League semifinal second leg.

They got it. An early goal from Divock Origi sent Jurgen Klopp’s team on its way, two in a three-minute span from second half sub Georginio Wijnaldum leveled the series and stunned the visitors before Origi added the winner — his second in as many games — in a match that will go down as one of the greatest in the annals of Europe’s top club competition.

The decisive goal was not without controversy:

As was the case in Barcelona despite the unflattering first-leg score line, Liverpool was the better team at Anfield. They outshot Barca in the first half, as they had over 90 minutes at the Nou Camp, and the home side always looked the more likely to score another after Origi — whose late winner against Newcastle on Saturday kept Liverpool’s dream of a first English title in almost 30 years alive — buried Jordan Henderson’s rebound just seven minutes in after Jordi Alba gave the ball away in midfield:

When the second goal didn’t immediately arrive, the visitors began to settle in. Slowly but surely, Barcelona started to create quality chances to secure an away goal and effectively put the series out of reach before the half was out. First Reds backstop Alisson Becker made a good stop on former Kop darling-turned enemy Philippe Coutinho. Then, on the ensuing corner kick, Lionel Messi proved he’s a mortal by pulling his wicked shot a little wide:

It went more or less the same way in the second half, with one critical difference. This time, the floodgates finally opened for the Reds. Liverpool manager Klopp looked like a genius after summoning Wijnaldum from the bench at the intermission before Origi delivered a deserved victory that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
