‘It’s A Dream’ Declares Alisson After Shock Barca Comeback
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson was in a state of disbelief as his side unbelievably overturned a 3-0 deficit to beat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate in the Champions League semi-finals at Anfield.
Liverpool trailed 3-0 after the first leg and had to negotiate the second leg without Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino. But the Reds won a pulsating match 4-0 to overturn the arrears and qualify for the final in Madrid.
“It's an incredible feeling indeed, wow what a game and what an effort," Alisson told Sky Sport Italia. "It had already happened to me as my Roma knocked out Barcelona last year.I am happy when I can help my team-mates out like this.
“It's amazing, it's a dream. We now have one objective, to win the Champions League final. We worked hard this year and we were ready to face Barcelona tonight. In the first leg, Barcelona missed a huge chance late on as they could've made it 4-0.
“At 4-0, it would've been very hard for us to comeback but at 3-0 we still believed. We made a huge comeback and our fans were behind us all game long. It was a memorable night indeed.”
