Liverpool overcame a valiant performance by Villarreal to book a third Champions League final in five seasons with a 3-2 victory at El Madrigal to complete a 5-2 aggregate win on Tuesday night.

The six-time European champions saw their first-leg advantage extinguished in the first half as Boulaye Dia's third-minute opener was added to by Francis Coquelin, who outjumped Trent Alexander-Arnold to float a header into the top corner (41).

But Fabinho restored Liverpool's advantage in the tie when his near-post shot flashed through Geronimo Rulli (62). It turned the tide as the inspired substitute Luis Diaz restored the visitors' two-goal cushion from Alexander-Arnold's cross (67).

I Call True: What a match and although this may be a cliche it really was a game of two halves. In the first half Liverpool looked slow and pedestrian, they quite frankly didn't look like Liverpool and with villa real 2-0 up and running rampant it looked a formality that Villa Real would knock Liverpool out, how-ever whatever Klopp said to them at half time worked, and it worked well as Liverpool came out looking and more importantly playing like Liverpool have all season and took Villa real apart, scoring three goals and safely going through to the final to play either Real Madrid or Man city who play tonight!

A game that Liverpool deserved to win in the second half but really didn't from the first half performance
