For the third time in the past five seasons, Liverpool reached the Champions League final, better than any other team.

Klopp repeatedly mentioned the word `cautious` before the semi-final second leg at Ceramica Stadium, but it seemed Liverpool players didn’t think so.

Boulaye Dia kicked the ball to open the score in the semi-final second leg in Villarreal, Spain on the evening of May 3.

This goal energized the hosts, allowing them to continue to dominate the match.

But Villarreal didn’t need a penalty to score the second goal.

The total score after the first half was 2-2, causing the two teams to play again from the beginning in the last 45 minutes.

Liverpool gradually created more pressure and finally made the host make a mistake in the 62nd minute. Fabinho penetrated the penalty area unmarked before receiving the ball from Mohamed Salah’s pass.

The away team took the lead but they did not stop there, but continued to apply intense pressure.

But Rulli’s nightmare did not end there.
