On Tuesday night, Liverpool made a stunning comeback to the Champions League, knocking Barcelona out after a smashing 4-0 victory. Given that only a week back, Barca bagged an advantageous 3-0 victory a Camp Nou, this wasn't what we saw coming. To add to that, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino had to pull out owing to injury and Liverpool had much to cover. After this stunning win, though, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is rightly calling his side 'mentality giants'.
At the Barcelona camp, a rather gloomy picture followed after their devastating loss. Leonel Messi had to immediately walk through a dope test which took so long that the team bus left for the airport, leaving him at Anfield. Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets apologised, saying the day did not belong to them. ‘They have been better than us. I apologise. After what happened in Rome, this happened again. It’s tough to go out like this after the first-leg result. Liverpool has been smarter than us, they were faster. I think we had chances to score the goal we needed, but it wasn’t meant to be today,' he said, reports Metro UK. Meanwhile, Twitter can't keep calm!
The best of meme machines are already at work and are churning out hilarious stuff. Like, the one below.
Such strong superhero reference, LOL! And then comes this one. VERY neatly said.
Messi fans might hate this one...
At Messi again! :(
Never heard a better situational song than this one...
And then, we saw this.
And since we always like to end it on a smiling note...
