Ousmane Dembele had a chance to extend FC Barcelona’s lead over Liverpool during the first leg of their Champions League semifinal matchup. He had what was essentially a clean shot at the net. Instead, he miss-hit the ball and it wound up in the arms of Liverpool keeper Alisson.
Check this out:
While that miss seemed trivial at the time, it came back to haunt Barcelona. A 3-0 lead after the first leg wound up not being enough, as Liverpool roared back at home in the second leg, winning 4-0. The stunning 4-3 result on aggregate sent Barcelona home early for the second-straight season.
The collapse by Barça was swift and stunning, as Liverpool jumped all over its opponent, even without star forward Mo Salah.
