Liverpool 4th goal vs Barcelona: Watch Origi and Alexander Arnold take advantage of a sleepy Barcelona defense to make it 4-0 on the night and 4-3 on aggregate.
Catastrophe has struck Barcelona at Anfield, as Divock Origi has banked home the 4th goal on the night, thanks to the Barcelona defense going off to sleep, with Robertson and Origi taking full advantage.
With the ball going out for a corner, the Barcelona defense was taking its time to settle while Robertson decided to take the corner early. He whipped it into the box with Origi waiting in the middle to bank it home and give Liverpool a 4-0 lead on the night and a 4-3 lead on aggregate.
The Barcelona players complained about the way in which the corner was taken, but the referee deemed it fit and let the goal stand.
From a Barcelona point of view, their defenders have to take a lot of blame for what just transpired. And one needs to give credit to the presence of mind of Robertson who put the ball into the feet of Origi, who then smartly put the ball in the back of the net.

Liverpool now need to hang onto the lead because one goal from Barcelona could end things for them, as they would then progress on the away goals rule. Barcelona would be kicking themselves at the moment, as they have once again blown a massive chance to make it to the finals, having completely switched off in the second half of the game. Only Messi could save them now.
