‘Liverpool is Liverpool’ – Twitter raged as Liverpool beat Villarreal 3-2 in the Champions League to secure a place in the final of the tournament

Liverpool celebrations

Villarreal took a comfortable lead over Liverpool in the first half to level the tie after Dia and Coquelin scored before the break to lead 2-0 in the evening. Villarreal completely dominated Liverpool’s defense and only scored in the third minute when Dia scored from a Capu cross. Liverpool’s players were overwhelmed by the attacking prowess of the men in yellow.

However, Liverpool turned the tie on its head again in the 61st minute after Fabinho scored the comeback goal to give them the overall lead. Within six minutes of scoring the first goal of the second half, Luis Diaz converted a Salah cross and Sadio Mane went alone after a Rulli error to make it 3-2 for Merseyside.

Liverpool reached their tenth final of Europe’s biggest competition in the toughest way. The tie was equalized by the home side in the first half but Liverpool had their answer in the second half.

Here are some reactions on Twitter after an empathic battle won by Klopp’s army:

Villarreal started the game very positively and dominated most of the first half and came into play in the 3rd minute after Dia opened the scoring and they reduced the score overall.

Coquelin equalized just before the break when he headed in. However, Liverpool made a classic comeback, reaching their 10th final for the first time. Liverpool have scored 139 goals in all competitions this season, the highest of any club in a single year.

Sadio Mane scored a solo goal after Villarreal’s goalkeeper messed things up and Mane didn’t fail to capitalize on the error to score Liverpool’s third goal of the evening. He is the first player from Africa in Champions League history to score 15 goals in the UCL knockout stage, beating Didier Drogba’s record.

Liverpool are already in the 2021-22 FA Cup final where they will play Chelsea. In the Premier League they are just a point behind Manchester City and can clinch the title.

Having already won the Carabao Cup, the Reds will also have their eyes on the Champions League this season, meaning they can get their hands on a quadruple by playing just six more good games and hope Manchester City loses some points in the Premier League.
