Overturning a 3 goal deficit isn't easy against any team but it's almost become Liverpool's to do the unthinkable. The score line from the first leg flattered the Catalan giants but they took their chances, Liverpool didn't.
Even I couldn't see this kind of turnaround happening. Again. The season has been tough but what a feat. Beating the Spanish champions comprehensively and without reply.
My second club, AS Roma knocked Barcelona out in similar fashion a round earlier last year turning the result around and progressing to play Liverpool.
Hopefully the final ends with a Liverpool victory and the trophy returns to Anfield once more.
While I'm tempted to flood your feeds with more and more coverage of last nights game, I'll stick to updating with links here:
- An Anfield miracle transcribed from the pages of pure fantasy
- Liverpool blow the living shit out of Barcelona

You can see the highlights of the historic win below:
Came across some post-match interviews I missed last night. One of the most striking things about Liverpool, especially under Klopp (and Rafael Benetiz before him), it's not about individual glory, this team is more than the sum of it's parts and I think that comes across so well. No matter the conduct of the opposition, how impressive the win or those moments of genius from one or two players, this team just do it all together.
BT Sport's 'No Filter' videos are a fantastic look back at the game.
A bit like BT Sport's unfiltered videos (above), Liverpool FC put together videos about match day, including some coverage of the game. I normally give them a miss, but couldn't this time:
