“Allez allez allez”, “European Royalty” – Fans react to Man City 1-2 Liverpool (1-5 agg)

Liverpool booked their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League with a historic 5-1 aggregate victory over Man City on Tuesday night.

Man City 1-2 Liverpool (1-5 agg)

Champions League Quarter-Final, Etihad Stadium
April 10, 2018

Goals: Jesus 2′; Salah 56′, Firmino 77′

After recording a dominating 3-0 victory at Anfield, Liverpool went into the second leg as huge favourites.

But it took just two minutes for Gabriel Jesus to break the deadlock and give City the lead.

City then controlled the first half and had a number of chances to score but Liverpool held on to their two-goal aggregate lead.

They continued their pressure in the second half but Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah linked up to score midway through the second half.

Liverpool then controlled the final 20 minutes and Roberto Firmino sealed the deal as they booked their place in the semi-final of the Champions League for the first time in a decade.

Here are some of the best reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media…

 

Fans were panicking after two minutes when Jesus scored and were not happy at half time…

 

But when Salah equalised, fans were ecstatic…

 

And at full-time fans couldn’t believe they had won and Roma had knocked out Barcelona…
