Liverpool sweats, then celebrates return to Champions League final

Liverpool they have reached their third Champions League final in five years, but the second leg was far more nerve-wracking than it seemed. What was supposed to be a procession after a 2-0 win in the first leg briefly threatened to turn into one of the most unexpected comebacks in European history as Villarreal won 2-0 at half time, but a much better performance from Liverpool in the first leg. The second half brought a 3-2 win on the night for a 5-2 aggregate victory. Now history can wait in Paris.
