Liverpool has officially reached their third champions league final in five years after qualifying in a stunning comeback win over Villarreal in Spain

Liverpool fans are screaming from the rooftops today and booking their trips to Paris, after qualifying for the Champions League final.

The club performed a turnaround like no other in the second half, to take the win 3-2, winning 5-2 on aggregate.

It wasn’t all smooth saying for the English Club though, with Villarreal dominating the first half up two-nil.

Liverpool Managers Jurgen Klopp must have given a remarkable speech at half-time because they came out fighting like a different team in the second half.

Klopp brought in super-sub Luis Diaz in the second half which turned the game on its head, snapping a goal straight away.

Fabinho, Díaz, and Sadio Mané scored in the second half, securing Liverpool’s spot in Paris.

Liverpool are through to their tenth European cup final to face Manchester City or Real Madrid in Paris, which is set to kick off on May 28.

“It was very special”

Formula One world champions Red Bull took their season launch to the United States with a spray of pyrotechnics in front of a rapt Manhattan crowd as fans braved the bitter cold outside.

Where once NASCAR and IndyCar had a stranglehold on American gearheads, the splash hit Netflix docu-drama “Drive to Survive” has indoctrinated legions of new fans in the United States.

Neither icy cold nor eye-watering winds whipping along the Hudson River could deter the dozens of people who showed up outside the Classic Car Club on Friday, hoping to catch a glimpse of their favourite drivers heading for the launch.

“I’ve been following it for a while and around 2017, 2016 it wasn’t that big in the United States,” said Tyler Quinn, 21, a college student in Manhattan, who last year saved up to see the Formula One race in Canada and feared the growing fan base could make future trips prohibitively expensive.

“It’s exploded exponentially. You know, when I talk to people in school … they all know about F1, they all recognise certain things, they all ask me questions. It’s growing fast and I really am glad about that.”
