Liverpool make Champions League history after setting up final date with Real Madrid

Liverpool made Champions League history after booking their place in the final to play Real Madrid following a 7-6 aggregate win against Roma on Wednesday night.

The Reds held a 5-2 aggregate lead from the first leg at Anfield and were 2-1 up at half time in Rome in the second leg.

However, Jurgen Klopp ’s men conceded three in the second half but held out to ensure they will face Zinedine Zidane’s side in the final.

That’s now a Champions League record, meaning Liverpool have overtaken Barcelona’s tally of 45 in 16 games in the 1999/2000 season.

Real Madrid now stand between Liverpool and the club’s sixth European Cup.

Zidane’s men will be favourites in Kiev to claim their 13th title and their fourth in the last five years but Liverpool’s dismantling of Roma and Manchester City in the last two rounds will have frightened the La Liga giants.
