Two goals each from forward Divock Origi and halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum left Barcelona and perhaps the best player of all time Lionel Messi shocked to the core. Liverpool have a rich history of European comebacks and this one will be right up there with the rest.
The Anfield performance by Liverpool on Tuesday night was the sheer definition of passion, belief and determination.
Soon after the win, Liverpool's official Twitter handle posted, "WHAT A SPECIAL NIGHT!!! WE'RE GOING TO THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL!!"

Twitter too erupted with reactions from around the sports world and sports fans following Liverpool's incredible victory.

Liverpool's injured talisman Mohamed Salah had walked into Anfield with his t-shirt reading 'Never Give Up'. His teammates heard him right and did not give up for even a second. They outworked Barcelona to snatch the victory.
The loss also saw a lot of memes targetting Messi. For the little magician, this was a hit-and-miss performance after scoring a remarkable free-kick a week earlier.
