Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 (4-3 agg): Origi & Wijnaldum stun beleaguered Barca

Lionel Messi Barcelona Josep Bartomeu

Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino's injury-enforced absence means Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi have been handed starts for Liverpool, with Sadio Mane completing the home team's attacking trifecta against the Catalans.

"To play at Anfield is like playing with an extra man for what the fans transmit to the Liverpool players", said Suarez. Ernesto Valverde's side had won the first leg 4-1 at Camp Nou to put one foot in the last four of the competition, only to collapse in stunning fashion on Italian soil.

Barcelona is looking to make its ninth Champions League final as it heads into the second leg of its semi-final against Liverpool with a commanding 3-0 lead.

Against Barcelona, Liverpool are also trying to overcome a 3-0 first-leg deficit without forward Robert Firmino, who has a muscle injury. And Barca may be haunted by the memories of last season, too.

Jurgen Klopp's side will be hoping another special European night at Anfield could help Liverpool FC's chances of completing a memorable comeback. They nearly got their wish on the first, as a corner kick swung in was nearly knocked in by Van Dijk, who had Clement Lenglet hanging all over him, but Ter Stegen alertly made the save. No disrespect to any of these teams, as they all have quality, but to get one point from games against Crystal Palace, Wolves, Leicester and Brighton isn't good enough.

Saskatchewan carbon-tax ruling a victory for the planet, environment minister says
Unlike those provinces, Manitoba had proposed an alternate carbon tax plan - a flat price of $25 per tonne that would not rise. Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, who has said a carbon tax hurts his province economically, confirmed there will be an appeal.

Another Barcelona player on Liverpool's radar is Arturo Vidal.

There were a few fraught moments for Liverpool in the final moments as they aimed to see out the game but marshalled by the ultra-cool Van Dijk they saw off any threat.

It is the second year running that Salah has suffered the cruellest of luck in the Champions League - in last season's final he had to leave the field with an injured shoulder after he was wrestled to the ground by Sergio Ramos.

Appearing alongside the Senegal worldwide could be the duo of Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi, who have both scored goals at vital moments of the season.

Liverpool fans face a scramble to find affordable flights to Madrid after securing a spot in the Champions League final on Tuesday night.
