It was an unexpected outcome on Tuesday night at Anfield, as Premiership giants Liverpool demolished mighty Barcelona by four unreplied goals to erase a three-goal deficit from the first leg and make it to the final of the 2019 European Champions League.

By so doing, Liverpool produced one of the greatest Champions League comebacks, beating Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate and reach the final.

After losing 3-0 at the Nou Camp, the Reds made the ideal start to this game when Divock Origi tapped home.

Georginio Wijnaldum scored twice in two second-half minutes to level the tie.

Origi then swept in a fourth from a clever corner routine to complete a remarkable victory.

Liverpool will play either Ajax or Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid on 1 June.

It was deja vu for Barcelona, who were beaten 3-0 in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Roma last year to exit the competition on the away goals rule, having won the first leg 4-1.

But for Liverpool it was another memorable European comeback that ranks alongside their victory against AC Milan in the 2005 final and their 4-3 win against Borussia Dortmund at Anfield three years ago.
