Liverpool Football Club is on the verge of making their tenth appearance at the summit of European football, but a 2-0 victory felt far from the apex of the game. This particular game was quite different from the tumultuous mayhem of the previous night at Manchester City.
Liverpool dominated the game throughout to a point where the Champions League semi-final felts like a regular Premier League win against Burnley.
It is important to note that this is more of a reflection of the growing economic gap in European sport, rather than any contempt for Unai Emery’s squad. They’ve done a fantastic job to get this far, and they still have a chance, but it still felt like they’d reached the limits of what this type of football can achieve.
Liverpool FC’s next match is a Premier League fixture against Newcastle FC at the St. James Park.
