Football has a habit of throwing out unlikely heroes and, as Anfield witnessed one of their greatest nights, Liverpool had two of them.
With the Reds completing one of the most remarkable turnarounds in Champions League history, it was Gini Wijnaldum and Divock Origi that stood up when it mattered most.
To a man, every Liverpool player was fantastic, but they were the driving force behind a sensational comeback against Barcelona.
The Merseysiders went into the second leg 3-0 down, they ended the tie 4-3 winners. It was a mastermind from Jurgen Klopp from the get-go and the Catalan club never looked capable of withstanding the magic that was unfolding at Anfield.
Liverpool went into this clash without two of their leading lights. Mo Salah was ruled out, and so too was Roberto Firmino. Surely they couldn’t do it without them? We were all proved wrong.
Understandably, Origi has had to watch on from the sidelines for most of the campaign, so with this in mind, his performance was elevated even higher.
No one expected him to be the hero, but there he was, peeling away in front of the Kop at a rate of knots after a piece of sheer ingenuity from Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The Belgian had scored just four goals going into the game, so to see him grab two against the remaining favourites for the competition was quite special. The image of him celebrating the club’s fourth goal provides all the evidence of what an incredible night it was.
Not many Liverpool fans would have predicted the turnaround, and they certainly wouldn’t have expected Origi to be at the forefront of things.
