Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Catalan newspaper forgets to unschedule video celebrating LaLiga club’s Champions League victory

One Catalan newspaper accidentally tweeted out a video celebrating Barcelona reaching the Champions League final.

The Spanish club were heavy favourites ahead of the semi-final second leg at Anfield as they began the match with a 3-0 aggregate lead.

However, against all the odds, Liverpool stunned the LaLiga champions – thrashing them 4-0 to reach their second European Cup final in a row.

The performance has been labelled as one of the greatest ever comebacks in football.

Catalan daily Sport were left feeling a little red-faced, though, as they forgot to stop their celebratory video from being publish.

The publication were evidently so confident Barcelona would go through they had the video already scheduled in on Twitter.

When the unlikely comeback happened the video still went out saying the Spanish club were in to the Champions League final to face either Tottenham or Ajax.

The Reds had an almost impossible task of overturning a 3-0 deficit from the first leg. The Reds were beaten last week at Camp Nou by a Lionel Messi brace and Luis Suarez’s lone strike.

However, doubles from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum gave Jurgen Klopp’s men a 4-0 win on Tuesday night to book their place in next month’s Champions League final.

Liverpool will play either Ajax or Tottenham in the Champions League final. Tune into talkSPORT this evening to hear full commentary of their semi-final second leg clash, live from Amsterdam!
