It’s still sinking in.
We just pulled off one of the most miraculous comebacks in footballing history to batter Barcelona 4-0, turn around the tie with intense attacking, and all without Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino.
The Reds looked worried when Andy Robertson was forced off at the break after being kicked by former Kop favourite Luis Suárez in the first half.
Once a favoured son of Anfield, Suárez stoked the ire of Reds fans by celebrating his Camp Nou goal and with his sh*thousing in both legs. But it backfired and he might well have cost his side a place in the final.
Robertson was replaced by none other than Gini Wijnaldum.
Origi had put us up 1-0 at half-time, which turned into 3-0 with alarming speed after Gini gave us two of his wishes in a quickfire double in a couple of minutes. Origi added a fourth to send Anfield into delirium and complete one of the most famous nights the Reds have ever seen.
After the whistle went for a glorious full-time, Robbo was asked after the game about his clash with the Uruguayan striker and our Scot had the perfect riposte.
Is right, Robbo! We’re off to Madrid and Suárez is off back to Barça to lick his wounds.
