Origi the hero as Liverpool reach Uefa Champions league final


Divock Origi was the hero again as his two goals helped Liverpool  beat Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to seal a place in the UEFA Champions League final for a second season in a row.

Needing to overturn a first-leg deficit of 3-0, Origi raised home hopes with a goal after seven minutes.

Georginio Wijnaldum ,on as a half-time substitute for the injured Andrew Robertson  , struck twice in just over two minutes to make the aggregate scores level.

Then a quick corner in the 79th minute from Trent Alexander-Arnold picked out an unmarked Origi, who, like against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday, struck the winning goal.

In the final in Madrid on 1 June, Liverpool will face Tottenham Hotspur or Ajax, with the Dutch side defending a 1-0 lead in Amsterdam on Wednesday.

They are the first Premier League team to reach back-to-back UEFA Champions League finals since Manchester United in 2008 and 2009.

Liverpool will next turn their attention back to the Premier League title race and Sunday’s visit to Anfield by Wolverhampton Wanderers.
