The task for Jurgen Klopp’s men seemed to be a huge mountain to climb after a 3 goal deficit from the first leg, however, the spirit, passion, work-rate and a moment of genius between Trent Alexander-Arnold & Divock Origi saw the Reds pull off a miracle.
The nature of the loss was the most daunting to take for the Culés.
With the game tied on aggregate, Alexander-Arnold came up with the goods for Liverpool on the 79th minute.
The right-back was on the money with his quickly taken corner as Origi finished off the move to put the Reds through to the final.
A season after, the Origi winner still seems to haunt the minds of the Barcelona defence.
Goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen must have got a surge of those memories pouring in during Barcelona’s recent Champions League tie as he screamed at Nelson Semedo for switching off while facing a last-minute corner against Napoli, with the right-back immediately making amends.
Knocked out of Europe’s most prestigious club competition for 4 seasons running, one can understand why Barcelona players would be especially careful to avoid another ‘corner taken quickly’ moment.
