Defeated 3-0 in the first leg, Liverpool managed to overthrow FC Barcelona at Anfield on Tuesday (4-0), after a breathtaking match.
A week after making a huge difference in points face Liverpool in the first leg (3-0), the mission of FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi was simply to deal the final blow on Tuesday night at Anfield on the sidelines of the Champions League semi-final return. In other words, a goal scored by the Catalans almost enough by itself to qualify the men of Ernesto Valverde for the final, which will be held on June 1 at Wanda Metropolitano.
Nevertheless, the Reds have proven time and again in their history that they are not really the type to be shot down without making the blows, carried by a public among the most fervent of Europe, making Anfield Road the theater of great feats. And this Tuesday night did not depart from the rule. On the contrary.
Origi installs doubt in Catalan heads
Punctuated, this is the adjective that best suits the beginning of this clash between English and Spanish. In an atmosphere of madness, and even deprived of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, the Reds pressed high the partners of Jordi Alba to pack the meeting and to sow doubt with their opponent.
And the least we can say is that they did not fail to achieve this, since the left side blaugrana was the author of a particularly dubious raise in its last thirty meters, quickly exploited by locals , who were resuming twice to deceive the vigilance of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, eventually defeated by Divock Origi (8th).
