According to Latest SOCCER NEWSone of the most incredible and best soccer games was brought to us on the night of Wednesday that has taken place in the Champions League. Liverpool has managed to overcome a deficit of 3-0 starting from the first leg as they beat Barcelona with a margin of 4-0 as they advance finals of the coveted UCL.

It is an unbelievable thing for the fans that have happened. Especially, this has happened after the news that came out that Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah are not in the playing eleven and not in the fixture that is going to happen tonight.

Despite all the adversities and odds, a miracle has once again been witnessed by Anfield. Liverpool Erases a Three-Goal Deficit against Barcelona, Reaches UCL Finals, 4-0 (4-3 agg.)

Everything started when the match kicked started with the first whistle. In the 7th minute of the game, Ter Stegen was beaten by Divock Origi. The striker from Belgium has been replacing Firmino came right in front of the goalkeeper from Germany when the shot by Henderson was stopped by him and the ball was just poked into the net as very early on it ignited the Anfield.

It can be seen very easily that the Reds fared much better and even though another goal was not scored by them until before the half time whistle blew at the very end of the first 45 minutes, they were looking very poised and confident.

Nevertheless, one more goal at least was supposed to happen in that very sequence, as because both Barcelona and Liverpool have been creating several changes that can be considered big ones. A couple of situations were created from which the guests got ample opportunities from where they could have taken a shot and equalized.

Nine minutes into the second half when the game started, it was time for Georginio Wijnaldum. The offensive midfielder from the Netherlands has struck twice within a couple of minutes as the guests were stunned.

Wijnaldum came from the reserve benches after the injury of Andy Robertson that happened during the break-in half-time.

The first goal came after Alexander when a low cross was made by Arnold right towards the spot from where spot kicks for penalties are taken, as this is the place where Wijnaldum rushed in and a precise low shot was sent by him behind Ter Stegen.

The goal which happened next came from the bang opposite side when a beautiful cross was made by Xherdan Saqiri that fell right on to the head of the Dutchman. Just moments later, it had hit the back of the net and the goal happened.

The fourth goal that was scored by Liverpool, has been a perfect deception made by Arnold as he wanted to leave the corner kick to be taken by Saqiri. But the ball was quickly sent towards Origi as he was standing alone in front of the area where the goalkeeper generally stays. Such a move was not expected by the players from Barcelona as they were not ready at all for it. Once again it so happens that Ter Stegen was easily beaten by Origi.

It was a repeat of sorts in the sense that Barcelona was again eliminated by Liverpool from the all-important European competition. This has happened for the fourth time going by their history as they clashed head-to-head.

The Reds are eagerly waiting for the winner of the matchup between Tottenham vs Ajax.
