Liverpool's Incredible Champions League Semi-Final Comeback Was Written In The Stars

Liverpool's Incredible Champions League Semi-Final Comeback Was Written In The Stars

Just like the 2010 Tinie Tempah smash hit, Liverpool's latest incredible European comeback was written in the stars.

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg at the Nou Camp and without Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino for the semi-final second leg, the Reds dismantled Barcelona 4-0 on another memorable night at Anfield.

Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum bagged braces to send Jurgen Klopp's side into a second consecutive Champions League final and have Liverpool fans dreaming of lifting a sixth European Cup in Madrid.

They needed a miracle on par with what they produced in Istanbul back in 2005 and that is exactly what was delivered. In fact, there's one stat in particular that proves Liverpool's sensational victory was just meant to be.

In their last European Cup final triumph 14 years ago, where they were 3-0 down at half-time against AC Milan, Liverpool scored goals in the 54th and 56th minute through Steven Gerrard and Vladimir Smicer.

And last night, Wijnaldum's devastating double came in those exact minutes. Actual shades of Istanbul.

Thanks to some unbelievable quick-thinking in the 79th minute from Trent Alexander-Arnold, Origi lashed in Liverpool's fourth and send Anfield into raptures.

Speaking after Liverpool's 4-0 victory, Klopp was lost for words, even dropping the F-bomb when conducted an interview with Des Kelly from BT Sport.



Presenter Gary Lineker said would normally apologise for the colourful language but quite rightly decided to let Klopp off the hook.

Was last night better than Istanbul?
