Or as Jurgen Klopp said it “Liverpool’s mentality giants” have achieved the almost impossible. It isn’t every day you frustrate the god of Football. It isn’t every day that the best Spanish Club turn spectators.
Liverpool were 3-0 down to Barcelona in aggregate after their frustrating defeat at Camp Nou. Without the Egyptian King and Senor Firmino, they were being considered knocked out of the Champions League.
But it never looked like that, since the start of the game, Jurgen’s Gegen pressing was seen in its full flow. They were so much in control of the game, that they eventually ended up scoring the first goal in the 7th minute of the game.
Barcelona, the side that just might be the best team in the world were turned into spectators. Building up the momentum from the first half, Liverpool were even stronger in the second one.
They were exposed to injuries as Henderson went down for a few minutes. Anfield threw spirit in his heart as he stood back up to complete the unfinished business.
Later, the heart of Liverpool went down as Andrew Robertson went down in a tough challenge. Then came the “Flying Dutchman” Georginio Wijnaldum. Within minutes of entering the game, He made the difference, the difference which was needed, the difference that takes Liverpool to Madrid. He scored two goals within the time span of five minutes.
The best footballer in the world might have been on the pitch. However, a 20-year-old, born and bred in Liverpool reflected genius instincts. It was quirky and cheeky play from Trent Alexander Arnold that assured Liverpool’s ticket to Madrid.
Furthermore, Liverpool FC tweeted that this was not a game that deserved a man of the match. Everybody stepped up.
