Accra, Ghana – Liverpool FC produced one of the greatest Champions League comebacks in history by overturning a three-goal first leg defeat to beat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate to reach the final.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian rapper D-Black cum BET nominee shared a photo of him and Lionel Messi before the match asking the world star how many goals he will be scoring.
Could this be a Black Curse just as Drake did to Man Utd Player Paul Pogba and PSG defender Kurzawa?
See the photo below.
Recap of the match:
After Barcelona won the first leg 3-0 at the Nou Camp, few gave Liverpool a chance of scoring the goals they needed to progress, let alone preventing the La Liga champions from scoring themselves.
But an early strike from Divock Origi, who tapped in after Marc-Andre ter Stegen failed to hold Jordan Henderson’s shot, gave the vociferous Anfield crowd the belief that another European fightback from the Reds could be on the cards.
Liverpool pressed against a lacklustre Barcelona, who struggled to get Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi involved, but the visitors managed to keep the deficit to 1-0 at half-time and leave the hosts with seemingly too much to do in the second half.
However, Georginio Wijnaldum, on as a substitute for the injured Andy Robertson, made it 2-0 with a low drive nine minutes after the break before the midfielder almost immediately made it 3-0 on the night and 3-3 on aggregate with a superb header.
And Origi, starting the game because of injuries to Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, completed a remarkable victory for Liverpool when he swept Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low corner into the back of the net late on.
The win means Liverpool are into the Champions League final for a second successive year and they will play either Ajax or Tottenham in Madrid on 1 June.
It was deja vu for Barcelona, who were beaten 3-0 in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Roma last year to exit the competition on the away goals rule, having won the first leg 4-1.
But for Liverpool it was another memorable European comeback that ranks alongside their victory against AC Milan in the 2005 final and their 4-3 win against Borussia Dortmund at Anfield three years ago.

Mohammed Salah Looked Up To Me : Eric Bekoe

“…..Mohammed Salah of Liverpool picked me as his role model. During my days at FC Petrojet, Salah was young boy playing for the youth side of Al Mokawloon who trained with Petrojet.
