Liverpool beat Villarreal to reach Champions League final

The Reds survived a huge first half scare at the Estadio de la ceramica on Tuesday night

Fabinho celebrates his goal against Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday evening

Liverpool had taken a two goal advantage to Spain on Tuesday evening in a match Villarreal anticipated greatly to write an history to it.

But it turned out that Jurgen Klopp's men skinned through the Submariners' alertness, coming back strong in the second half after ruining their two goal lead.

Thanks to first half goals from Boulaye Dia and Francis Coquelin that put the La Liga side levelled on aggregate bolstering their hope for a similar masterstroke they executed against Bayern Munich that booked their semi final place.

But expectations were let down after Luis Diaz came from the bench to make the difference with a goal and a change to the pace of the game.

Fabinho fired the Reds back to a goal lead on aggregate followed by Diaz header before Sadio Mane finally puts the key to Paris in the the Reds' pocket.

Are you kidding? All three goals scored in the second half? Some Villarreal faithfuls remembered Istanbul and Barcelona , it's the Champions League,
"Oh let's drink juice we weren't far off the mark."

Liverpool now await a decider of their two notable fierce rivals Manchester City and Real Madrid in Wednesday's showdown.
