UCL Rewind: Milan 3-3 Liverpool (2-3 pens). The GREATEST comeback in UCL history

  /  Will_Lee_15

Hello everyone! Welcome to UCL Rewind, today let's relive Liverpool's incredible comeback victory over Milan in the 2005 UEFA Champions League final in Istanbul. 

What would you do when your team suffered a 3-0 down in the first half in Champions League final? However, Liverpool told us a different story in 2005.

Maldini gave Milan a first-minute lead and Crespo's double gave Milan a seemingly unassailable lead. But Gerrard kept Liverpool hope and Smicer & Alonso leveled in a seven-minute spell.

And we all know that Dudek then saved Reds in the shoot-out to clinch a stunning victory.

It capped an amazing turnaround, with Liverpool looking out of contention after they were completely outclassed in the first-half.

And in a show of character that broke Italian hearts they claimed the trophy for the fifth time - a feat that ensures the trophy will now stay at Anfield permanently.
