Champions League Update

Stunning scenes at Anfield, where Liverpool has staggered Barcelona, beating Barca 4-0 in the second leg of their semi-final match.  Since Barcelona won the first led 3-0, that means that Liverpool win with an aggregate score of 4 to 3.  Liverpool will advance to the Champions League final.

Liverpool will face the winner of the semi-final between Tottenham Hotspur (England) and Ajax (Netherlands).  In the first leg of that match -- in England -- Ajax won 1-0.  The second leg will be played in Amsterdam tomorrow.

This will be the first time since the 2012-13 season that the Champions of Europe will not come from Spain.  Real Madrid has won four of the last five titles, with Barcelona winning the fifth.
