Liverpool stun Barcelona to reach Champions League final

Danny Mills: I’m expecting Klopp to make this surprise Liverpool tactical move tonight

However, Origi and substitute Wijnaldum were the unlikely heroes as Barca surrendered a three-goal first-leg lead to exit the Champions League for the second straight season.

After a 3-0 win at home, Barcelona came into the reverse semi-final tie at Anfield as clear favourites to progress to the final. "For the last goal, Barcelona were absolutely frozen".

As a Liverpool player, I learnt for myself what a difference that support makes - I would describe it as a feeling of "whoosh", and "wow".

"When it looks good, it's good and Messi gets all the plaudits. I think the people from outside doubted us and thought that we couldn't do it, but once again we showed that anything is possible", he added.

Barca were left to rue not taking their chances in the first half after weathering Liverpool's early burst.

The Scouser in the Liverpool team is set to contest the second Champions League final of his career at the age of 20. "They might get away with 45 minutes, but not the whole game".

They took that to heart.

One dead and four injured after fire breaks out on Russian plane
A Russian passenger plane has made an emergency landing at Moscow Airport after a fire broke out mid-flight this morning. Russia's Investigative Committee said two children were among the dead but did not immediately provide further details.

Reports in the Spanish media have claimed that, on his eventual arrival at the airport, Messi was involved in an angry confrontation with a group of Barcelona supporters furious at their team's latest collapse in the Champions League. Indeed, Luis Suarez appealed against the goal being allowed.

Some United fans were also quick to point out that the Magpies, who lost 3-2 to Liverpool on Saturday, put up a much stronger fight than Barca.

"Winning against Barcelona is obviously one of the most hard things in the world of football; winning against Barcelona when you are actually 3-0 down makes it not easier", said Klopp.

Two minutes later, he made another run into the area and met a cross from Xherdan Shaqiri with a firm header into the corner past a flat-footed Ter Stegen.

Then came the coup de grace after the cheeky play by Alexander-Arnold at a corner.

Liverpool will face either Dutch side Ajax or Premier League rivals Tottenham in the final on June 1 in Madrid and will likely be favourites to be crowned European champions for the sixth time.

Interestingly, Messi netted a brace in the first leg of semi-finals, but was well checked by Liverpool defenders in the return leg.
