London, UK | THE INDEPENDENT | Liverpool produced a stunning second-half comeback to defeat Villarreal 3-2 and advance to the Champions League final.

Villarreal cancelled out Jürgen Klopp’s side’s first-leg advantage courtesy of Boulaye Dia’s early strike and Francis Coquelin’s header, but the visitors emerged for the second period a different team, with half-time substitute Diaz in inspired form.
The Reds will now face either Real Madrid or Manchester City in Paris in the third Champions League final of Klopp’s glorious reign.
