The second leg began with Unai Emery’s Yellow Submarines taking a 2-0 lead after half-time. But the next 45 minutes saw Liverpool come from behind with goals from Fabinho (62), Luiz Diaz (67) and Sadio Mane (74) to reach their 10th European Cup/Champions League final.
Real Madrid, likewise, overcame a first-leg deficit (3-4) with a 3-1 victory over Manchester City in the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.
A brace from Rodrygo and a penalty from Karim Benzema earned the Los Blancos a convincing victory over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and saw the 13-time champions reach their first UCL final since 2018.
