The Blizzard: Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona, 2019
We’re revisiting a modern classic on today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard. To discuss a game that followed a fantastical narrative, we brought on an equally excellent storyteller – director of ‘Diego Maradona’, Asif Kapadia!
Asif chanced upon a ticket for this second-leg tie at Anfield (next to Michael Fassbender, no less), as Liverpool’s season was seemingly petering out. But Jurgen Klopp stood by his tactical beliefs and, after Divock Origi tapped home after just seven minutes, the inexorable tide began to turn. Then the corner was taken quickly–ORIGI!
