Some Liverpool fans have been looking back at our famous 1-0 victory against Barcelona in the UEFA Cup semi-final back in 2001.

Sunday marked the 19th anniversary of the evening that saw the Reds advance to the final in Dortmund after we stopped the Catalan giants from scoring in 180 minutes of football, as the first leg ended 0-0 at the Nou Camp.

All that it took was a first-half penalty from Gary McAllister following a handball from Barca’s Patrick Kluivert, but it was a nail-biting encounter under the lights at Anfield where our backs were against the wall.

Is the Barcelona victory one of our greatest European nights?

Yes

Yes

No

No

We went on to win the trophy in Germany after a 5-4 victory over Spanish side Deportivo Alaves, which ended winning via the old golden goal rule.

With this in mind, supporters hailed the outing and evening as a whole, making their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that it was a “performance that Jose would be proud of”, referring to Spurs boss Jose Mourinho who is renowned for his defensive tactics.
