Champions League semi-final: Liverpool vs Barcelona

Overturning a 3-0 deficit against a Barcelona side in top form was always going to be a mammoth task, considering the quality of Barcelona's strikeforce and the absence of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino. However, Divock Origi slotted in Liverpool's first goal after just seven minutes. That was when Barcelona's official Twitter page decided to put out a tweet saying that if Barcelona were to score just one more goal, that would leave Liverpool needing five more goals on the night to proceed to the Champions League finals.

A goal for Barcelona did not come, although goals did come for Liverpool in the second half. Georginio Wijnaldum turned up with a brace in the span of two minutes to pull Liverpool level on aggregate. Then, Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold would conjure up what would go down as one of the most memorable moments in Liverpool's illustrious Champions League history. The Liverpool right-back spotted an unmarked Divock Origi in the Barcelona box and fired in a corner right at the Belgian's feet, who duly obliged and went on to score Liverpool's winner.
