Liverpool steamrolled over Barcelona 4 – 0 to reach the UEFA Champions League Final after beating Messi’s team 4 – 3 on aggregate.
Liverpool started the match 3-0 down on aggregate and faced a uphill battle to reach the final.
Liverpool will play the winner of tomorrow night’s semi-final between Ajax Amsterdam and Tottenham Hotspurs. The Dutch side are 1-0 ahead after the first leg in London.
The Guardian reports “ofall the incredible nights at Anfield, where does this one count? It has to be somewhere near the top and, genuinely, there is no hyperbole whatsoever to say that it probably trumps the lot, everything that has happened before at this famous old stadium, with the floodlights on and the European Cup as the target.
By the time it was all done, it was the players of Liverpool who could look forward to the final in Madrid on 1 June and, for Barcelona, that made it one of the more harrowing ordeals of all their years when they have graced Europe’s premier club competition. Barça once overcame a 4-0 first-leg deficit against Paris Saint-Germain by winning 6-1 in the return fixture. They will know now what it is like to be on the receiving end when it comes to the list of great Champions League comebacks.”
