Liverpool are on their way to Paris for yet another Champions League final

Liverpool can never ever do it the easy way.

Two nil up going in the second leg after a dominant performance at Anfield the perception was that the Reds were already in the final.

However at half-time Villareal had pulled the lead back to all level on aggregate with Jurgen Klopp’s side looking rattled and completely out of their depth.

A stern talking to from Klopp at half-time completely changed the game though as they were a different side after the interval with substitute Luiz Diaz changing the game.

Three goals in a 12 minute time period turned the game and booked the tickets to Paris.

Goals from Boulaye Dia and Francis Coquelin in the first half had every Liverpool fan ferociously biting their nails at half-time as they were so far off the pace.

The defence looked shaky, the midfield was bullied and the attack struggled to link-up at any period with the side only having 66% passing accuracy.

Goals from Fabinho, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane changed the game in the second half with goals thanks to errors from goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli.

Fabinho was slipped in by Mo Salah and fired home from an unlikely angle but the ball went through Rulli’s legs.

Trent Alexander-Arnold planted a cross on Diaz’s head which the Argentine should have kept out and for the third he came charging out of his goal for no reason to make Mane take it round him for an open goal.

Remarkably the quadruple is still on for Liverpool and now they await their opposition in the Champions League final as with Manchester City edging Real Madrid 4-3 on aggregate going into the second leg.

A romantic weekend away in Paris awaits every red.

This side will go down as one of the greatest these set of supporters will ever set their eyes on.
