“Unbelievable, incredible, special & unforgettable” – Liverpool fans react to reaching Champions League final

On arguably the greatest night in Anfield history, Liverpool reached the Champions League final after a 4-0 win over Barcelona.

Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona (4-3 agg)

Champions League Semi-Final, Second Leg, Anfield
May 7, 2019

Goals: Origi 7′, 79′, Wijnaldum 54′, 56′

The Reds went into the tie with an incredibly slim chance of progressing, but what unfolded was bordering on unprecedented.

Divock Origi opened the scoring early on, pouncing from the rebound after Jordan Henderson‘s effort had been saved.

A quickfire double from substitute Gini Wijnaldum in the second half put Jurgen Klopp‘s team in dreamland, before Origi’s brilliantly worked second of the night sent them through.

The emotion after the final whistle was truly remarkable, amid scenes of unbridled joy, and the final in Madrid against Ajax or Tottenham awaits.
