Balotelli defends Messi and Ronaldo after UCL exits

Liverpool news Barcelona Luis Suarez promise Anfield Champions League

However, Divock Origi - making a rare start - and substitute Georginio Wijnaldum both scored twice as Barca surrendered a three-goal first-leg lead to exit the Champions League for the second straight season.

For Simon Plumb, it's arguably the greatest game in Champions League history, though others cast their minds as far back as last month and Tottenham's 4-4 away goals defeat of Man City.

According to sportskeeda.com citing Spanish media outlet "El Chiringuito", the club captain was held behind by anti-doping officials to undergo test at Anfield, moments after Blaugrana were sent packing from the UCL by Liverpool.

Liverpool advance 4-3 on agg.

Speaking after the game, two-goal hero, Origi said he was detailed by the coach to stay close to the Barcelona defenders and try to catch them off guard. I was really angry at the manager that he put me on the bench but I had to do something to help the team when I came on.

Salah, Liverpool's top scorer who missed the game as he followed protocols after a concussion, entered the stadium before kickoff wearing a T-shit bearing the message: "Never Give Up". Fabinho followed that up with a crunching tackle on Luis Suarez, who was jeered relentlessly by Liverpool fans at the ground he graced for 3 1/2 years.

After they had trudged back to the dressing room, it was apparently all too much for skipper Messi, who broke down in tears, according to the Guardian. Barcelona had no answer, with Messi - the star of the first leg with two goals - largely snuffed out.

"Liverpool have been smarter than us, they were faster". There were also positive tweets praising Liverpool for getting the job done.

Eden Hazard the best belgium player to grace football?

Jurgen Klopp's side will play the victor of Wednesday's other semifinal between Ajax Amsterdam and Tottenham Hotspur, with the Dutch side leading 1-0 from the first leg in London. It is hard to speak about the final now as we still have one more Premier League game. The two remaining semifinalists are set to play in Amsterdam on Wednesday, with Ajax holding a 1-0 aggregate lead in the tie.
