Liverpool fans were ecstatic after the Reds reached the Champions League final despite a 4-2 loss in Rome, running out 7-6 winners on aggregate.

Roma 4–2 Liverpool (6-7 agg.)

Champions League Semi-Final Second Leg, Stadio Olimpico
May 2, 2018

Goals: Milner OG 15′, Dzeko 52′, Nainggolan 86′, 90+3′; Mane 9′, Wijnaldum 25′


Liverpool’s dreams of a sixth European Cup success are now just one step away from becoming reality despite defeat in Rome thanks to a 7-6 aggregate victory.

Sadio Mane got the night off to a perfect start finishing counter-attack after nine minutes, but Roma re-opened the contest instantly with a very unfortunate James Milner own goal.

And Gini Wijnaldum soon restored the four-goal advantage with his first away goal in three years all inside a crazy first 25 minutes—leaving Roma facing the impossible.

Edin Dzeko finished on the rebound to level the score on the night and pull the aggregate score to 4-7.

Radja Nainngolan set up a slightly nervy finish with a long-range strike with five minutes to go and made it a nerve-wracking final minute after converting a penalty.

But the Reds saw out the final stages to book their place in the Kiev final and supporters were over the moon at the full-time whistle.

Here’s how Reds fans reacted to a historic night across social media and on our forums.
