Good draw for Liverpool. They hammered Porto last year. Juventus Ajax should be fun. City and Barca will roll Spurs and United. Tough draw as those teams would have had a chance vs any of the other 4 sides. The Nou Camp and Eithad will be too much to overcome.
Chelsea looks like they have a stroll to the Europa league final. Arsenal got a terrible draw and also had to have its home match flipped so they play away second.
Yesterday's Citeh vs Spurs game was one of the best UCL games in the last decade. 4 goals in the first 11 minutes was insane. When the stoppage time goal went in, my heart sank. But, VAR correctly ruled Aguero offside and Spurs are on to the semi-finals based on away goals.
Final 10 +5 were up and pacing. Until Origi's second, I was proud that we were, indeed, "failing beautifully".
“We want to celebrate the Champions League campaign, either with a proper finish or another goal. That is the plan: just try. If we can do it, wonderful. If not, then fail in the most beautiful way." Jurgen Klopp before the game
The 4th goal was nuts. I've seen teams try a quick corner before, but that's the first time I've ever seen it actually work. I don't think Origi was even looking when Alexander-Arnold kicked it. Amazing.
Tottenham is on to face Liverpool in the Champions League final. After going down 1-0 to Ajax last week, Spurs allowed Ajax to jump out to a 2-0 lead (0-3 aggregate) before halftime yesterday. Lucas Moura scored in the 55th and 59th minutes and then capped off his 2nd half hat trick in the 90+6th minute to send Spurs through on away goals.
And if Arsenal wins the Europa League, then they become the 5th Premier League team in the Champions League for next season. Still happens even if Manchester United somehow finishes ahead of them in the table after Sunday.
