Divock Origi's Dramatic Winner vs. Barcelona Voted The Greatest Goal In Liverpool's 130-Year History

“Corner taken quickly... Origi!" are four words that will go down in the history of Liverpool Football Club.

On the night of May 7, 2019, Jurgen Klopp's men pulled off the seemingly impossible when they overturned a three goal deficit to beat Lionel Messi and co.

A brace from both Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum handed Liverpool a place in the Champions League final as Anfield crackled with excitement.

Two years on from that game and fans still reminisce about that 78th minute winner to this day. In fact, Origi's dramatic finish against the Catalan giants has been voted Liverpool's greatest ever goal.

As part of the club's 130th anniversary celebrations, those behind the scenes at Liverpool selected a total of 130 incredible strikes to compete against each other.

Entries 130-11 were then ranked by a panel based on the goal's quality, importance, iconic status and lasting legacy.

And eventually, fans had to vote for their top 10. So who else ranked amongst the best?

Rather unsurprisingly, former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard took second and third with two iconic strikes.

The goal that came second was that late screamer against West Ham in the 2006 FA Cup final, and his header against AC Milan in Istanbul came third – the header that sparked the most dramatic of European comebacks.

You can see the rest of the top 10 on Liverpool's official Twitter page below. There's some corkers in here.

Earlier this year, Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders explained the team’s tactical approach for their memorable Champions League semi-final comeback against Barcelona in a must-watch masterclass.

During the detailed 28-minute video on YouTube channel The Coaches' Voice, Lijnders speaks about Liverpool’s counter-press, playing against Lionel Messi and the difference between pressing and chasing.
