On Wednesday Barcelona achieved a splendid win over Liverpool by 3-0. In the second half of the match, Lionel Messi made two goals which helped Barcelona to beat Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final first leg at the Camp Nou. Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez opened the scoring at midway through the opening half. The second goal by Messi was an incredible long-range free-kick and at the same time, it was his 600th Barcelona goal in all competitions.
It turned out to be a memorable performance from the Argentine star and commentators Gary Lineker and Rio Ferdinand absolutely lost it after Messi’s free-kick.
Rio Ferdinand had uploaded a video on his official Twitter handle showing the former Manchester United defender and Gary Lineker went crazy as Luis Garcia was so surprised that he could not believe his eyes and had his hands on his head.
Rio Ferdinand covered his mouth and Gary Lineker turned to the screen shouting “wow”. However, Messi refused to take all the credits for the win which also Luis Suarez score against his former club.
“We must be more united than ever, all together: the team, the fans. “We said at the beginning of the season that we will win it together.”
On Tuesday, the two sides meet again next for the decisive second leg at Anfield. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said that “How we caused them problems was outstanding”.
“I don’t know if we can play much better. But one moment there’s Messi with an easy goal and the second was unsaveable,” he added.
