Liverpool’s miraculous 4-0 victory over Barcelona in last night’s Champions League action showed just how good their season has been.

The win has pushed them to the final of the competition, with their second leg performance giving them a 4-3 aggregate triumph.

The significance of the comeback victory has been so great that it has brought comparisons with their 2005 Champions League success in the final, where they overturned a 3-0 half-time deficit. Some fans have said that their most recent comeback was better than the 2005 one.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger knew that Liverpool would trouble Barcelona in the second leg, highlighting that their home ground advantage would give them a great chance of overcoming the deficit.

“Anfield is the only place you don’t want to go to for the return leg,” Wenger said on Bein Sports.

Wenger certainly believed that the impossible could happen, with the home fans pushing the Reds all the way until the final whistle. Fantastic scenes then took place at the conclusion of the match, as players and fans joined together in a rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone. It was a moment that could inspire the Reds to Champions League glory.

The Reds have been outstanding this campaign and last night’s victory gives them a golden chance at a trophy this season.

Despite only one defeat in the Premier League season, the Reds still find themselves in second place behind an unbelievable Manchester City side. If the table remains the same following the final matchday of the season and the Reds win their last game against Wolves, Liverpool will finish as runners up on a staggering 97 points.

There is still a possibility that the Reds can win the Premier League, however their fate is not in their hands.

Regardless, their Champions League triumph over Barcelona has placed them into the final, and they will certainly now have the belief that they can achieve European glory. If they are unsuccessful in winning the Premier League, a Champions League trophy would be a reward for an unbelievable season.
