When it comes to drama, passion and the Champions League, Liverpool Football Club certainly delivers. What a change of pace from the first two draws between Liverpool Football Club and Arsenal this past week.
For the first thirty minutes Liverpool was on the back foot and when Arsenal scored in the first thirteen minutes by Diaby, Liverpool lost their advantage.
But Liverpool are known as the comeback kings when it comes to European nights. When Sami Hyypia scored that stunning header it was game on. Both teams were finding it hard to score the winner then Fernando Torres delivers a screamer to put Liverpool ahead. He left Senderos wondering what was going on.
Both managers were proving they were master tacticians for their substitutions as Wenger brought on Theo Walcott and Robin Van Persie whereas Benitez brought on Ryan Babel.
Walcott had a wonderful run and was unfortunate not to score but provided beautifully for Adebayor. Arsenal had the advantage but two minutes later Kolo Toure brought down Ryan Babel in the box which Gerrard then converted perfectly.
Ryan Babel then had a beautiful run which Cesc Fabregas could not keep up to score the fourth and knock Arsenal out of Europe.
This was such a nail biting game especially as it drew to a close. Fernando Torres claims this as his biggest night of his career. People are claiming this as a rival to Istanbul.
It took our Captain to deliver the nail on the coffin for Arsenal. No other club has given European competitions such logic-defying drama on a regular basis. Once again Liverpool face Chelsea in the semi finals.
What an exciting, blood pumping conclusion to the trilogy week.
