Anfield were in the midst of a wild celebration as Liverpool made a surprise comeback by beating Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final last year.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will have to beat Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid to make up for the 3-0 loss in the first leg to reach the final.

Arsenal fans have memories of May 7, the start of a run that was never repeated in the Premier League era.

It is also a day of grief, as it marks the anniversary of the death of Baleseros, the great golfer.

2000 – David Colthard finishes second at the Spanish Grand Prix after a plane crash

Michelaren claimed to be a famous duo in Barcelona on this day 20 years ago, a day to forget Michael Schumacher and Ferrari by defeating teammate David Colthard of the Hakkinen team.

Colthard was even surprised to be on the grid that he was injured in a fatal plane crash just five days ago.

The pilot and co-pilot of the light aircraft died after falling into the flames of Leon, while Colthard fled with a broken rib.

Scott said racing in discomfort was “a low price to pay” and hinted not to spray champagne while on stage: “Last week two families suffered a huge loss and I don’t think it would be right for me to celebrate in such a situation. Please. “

2003 – Pennant hat-trick marks the birth of the indomitable

With Manchester United already winning the title and both sides cornered to reach the FA Cup final, Arsenal’s clash with Southampton on this day did not compete fiercely.

The Gunners went on to win 1-1, where Jermaine Penement made his Premier League hat-trick and Robert Pires got the other three and Joe Tessem consoled.

The result was far-reaching consequences. It was the start of a 49-run unbeaten run in the top flight until October 2009, when United finally stopped Arsene Wenger’s relentless play.

The Ingenballs, who became the only team in the history of the Premier League to remain unbeaten all season in the 200 Inv-04, still hold the record for the longest unbeaten streak in England’s top division. Oh, and they also beat Southampton in the FA Cup Final.

2011 – CVO Balesteros dies

The great Major Balesteros died in May, 2011 after a battle with brain cancer.

The Spaniard died at home in Pedrena three years after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor after a 2006 crash at Madrid airport.

Balesteros is still remembered as an all-time star of the sport. He was a five-time major winner and won a total of 90 titles, while he was both a player and captain in the Ryder Cup.

However, it was this style that won him over to a team of fans and encouraged Lee Westwood, the world number one at the time of Balesteros’ death, to describe him as “inspiration, talent, character model, hero and friend”.

2019 – Liverpool leave Barcelona

Barcelona lost 3-0 to Roma in the 2011-18-18 quarter-finals. After a 4-1 win in the first leg, they were knocked out on goal difference.

Last season, with a 3-0 win over Liverpool in the bag from Camp Nou and memories of Rome still hating them, they were determined that it would not happen again.

We all know what happened next.

Divok Oriji put Liverpool ahead and, when Georgino Wijnaldum 122 scored twice in the second half of the second half, the tie was tied and Bar্সa split. Oriji then quickly got second from Trent Alexander-Arnold Corner, Liverpool 4-0 and 4-3 ahead on aggregate, Anfield was rocking and Barাa were out again.

Liverpool have won the European Championship for the sixth time. In the case of Bar বারa, that humiliating trip to Marseille will probably never be forgotten.
