Liverpool Strike Down Barcelona 4-0 : To Reach 2nd Consecutive UCL Final
Liverpool entered the second leg of the Champions League semifinal facing an improbable 3-0 deficit.
The Reds had the support of the Anfield crowd but were without the services of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino due to injuries.
However, The Red produced one of the greatest Champions League comebacks in history by overturning a three-goal first-leg deficit to beat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate and reach the final.
After Barcelona won the first leg 3-0 at the Nou Camp, few gave Liverpool a chance of scoring the goals they needed to progress, let alone preventing the La Liga champions from scoring themselves.
But an early strike from Divock Origi, who tapped in after Marc-Andre ter Stegen failed to hold Jordan Henderson’s shot, gave the vociferous Anfield crowd the belief that another European fightback from the Reds could be on the cards.
Georginio Wijnaldum, on as a substitute for the injured Andy Robertson, made it 2-0 with a low drive nine minutes after the break before the midfielder almost immediately made it 3-0 on the night and 3-3 on aggregate with a superb header.
And Origi, starting the game because of injuries to Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, completed a remarkable victory for Liverpool when he swept Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low corner into the back of the net late on.
The win means Liverpool are into the Champions League final for a second successive year and they will play either Ajax or Tottenham in Madrid on 1 June
Woderful: Bayern Munich Win 7th Consecutive Bundesliga Title
Bayern Munich have been crowned Bundesliga champions for the seventh Consective time after beating Eintracht Frankfurt in the last game of the season.
Niko Kovac’s team held a two-point lead at the top of the German top flight heading into matchday 34 and a superior goal difference to Borussia Dortmund, meaning a draw would have been enough to seal the crown even if their nearest challengers won at Borussia Monchengladbach.
But there was very little doubt Allianz Arena, as the reigning champions wasted little time in getting their advantage with Kingsley Coman scoring just four minutes into the contest.
There was a momentary worry as late in the first half a Serge Gnabry goal was ruled out after VAR review, while Frankfurt found an equaliser early in the second half through Sebastien Haller.
With Dortmund leading through Jadon Sancho, another Frankfurt goal without Bayern reply would have put the champions under threat.
But just three minutes after Haller’s equaliser, David Alaba found the back of the net to restore the advantage and Bayern never looked back

Liverpool Beat Wolve 2-0, But Suffer Heartbreak
Liverpool missed out on a first Premier League title despite beating Wolves 2-0 at Anfield on Sunday on the final day of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side moved onto 97 points from 38 games thanks to Sadio Mane’s double, but Manchester City’s 4-1 win at Brighton and Hove Albion means the Reds’ 29-year wait for the top-flight crown goes on.
Hope was kindled among the home fans when news of City going behind arrived shortly after Mane turned home, but once Pep Guardiola’s side moved ahead before half-time, Liverpool appeared resigned to their disappointment.
Senegal star Mane got his 22nd of a superb league campaign with nine minutes to go, but celebrations were largely muted in the Merseyside sunshine.
