With Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino absent, Belgium winger Origi continued his fine scoring form after his winner against Crystal Palace by smashing home a seventh minute opener.

Barcelona weren’t given the chance to settle in the game as Jurgen Klopp’s men kept up the pace with Wijnaldum scoring a quick brace before the hour to put the two-legged tie on a 3-3 aggregate.

With stoppage time fast approaching Alexander-Arnold’s quickly taken corner allowed Origi to hit the back of the net in the 79 th minute to book a place in the final.

Barcelona suffered the same fate when they surrendered their lead to AS Roma in quarter-final last season.

The historic 4-3 aggregate triumph means Liverpool will play the winner of Ajax and Tottenham on June 1 in Madrid.
