Liverpool overturned a 3-0 defeat in their first leg against Barcelona to qualify for the Champions League final.

Divock Origi opened the scoring for Liverpool tapping from close range in what was unlikely comeback from the Reds.

Substitute Georginio Wijnaldum scored twice in a space of three minutes to tie the two sides on aggregate.

Barcelona failed to respond against Klopp’s side with Messi falling short to score a goal for the visitors.

It was in the 79th minute that Barcelona defense was caught offside by Origi who capitalized on a corner kick giving Liverpool the crucial win.

It is the second time the home team qualified to the finals even at the absence of Roberto Firmino and Mohammed Salah.
