Lineker spots good omen for Liverpool’s Champions League campaign

Liverpool are the only English club left standing in the Champions League, and they are just three games away from winning the tournament.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were underdogs heading into their quarter-final tie against Manchester City, but they got off to the perfect start in the first leg at Anfield.

Inside 31 minutes, Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane found the back of the net for the Reds.

City were unable to respond, and despite Gabriel Jesus scoring in the second minute of the second leg at the Etihad Stadium, Pep Guardiola’s side failed to overturn the deficit.

In the end, Salah and Roberto Firmino killed off the game to send Liverpool into the semi-finals for the first time in a decade.

Earlier today, it was confirmed that the Merseyside outfit will take on Roma in the final four, with the possibility of meeting either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the showpiece in Kiev.

Not many would have given Liverpool a sniff prior to the start of the tournament, but former England international and BBC host Gary Lineker has tweeted a good omen for the fans to get excited about.

To increase the optimism even more, Liverpool defeated Madrid in the final in 1981.
