It was a glorious night for Liverpool Football Club on Wednesday, as they thrashed FC Porto 4-1 to qualify for the semi-finals of the 2019 Champions League.
Liverpool’s victory has now set them up for a clash with Lionel Messi’s Barcelona.
Liverpool came into the match with a 2-0 advantage from the first leg played at Anfield last week.
The English team opened scoring through Sadio Mane, a goal that was allowed after a lengthy VAR review.
Mohamed Salah, substitute Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk put their names in the scoring sheet in the second half to seal Liverpool’s victory.
