Liverpool’s task of overcoming a three-goal deficit against Real Madrid was hard enough but Alisson Becker knew that if the Reds stood any chance of recording an improbable victory, he couldn’t allow the home side to score past him.

Our No.1 threw himself in the way of the ball and his outreached right arm kept Jurgen Klopp’s side in the tie.

We’d rather not have to rely on the 30-year-old but he’s so often there when we need him.
