Sevilla mounted an emotional comeback in the second-half to earn a thrilling 3-3 draw against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
Liverpool seemed to have unlocked the Sevilla hurdle in the first-half as they raced to a 3 goal lead against a team that has been undefeated at home for over a year. However, it all unraveled in the second half as the home side rallied from the three-goal deficit to earn a point on the night.
Fans could not control their emotions after another defensive collapse from Liverpool.

Liverpool Football Club – The only team who can lose a 90 minute game after being ahead for 95 minutes.

Its funny how Liverpool fans mock Mourinho for being defensive. Even more hilarious considering they dropped a 3 goal lead. 😂😂😂

On the bright side, Roberto Firmino scored a brace on the night and was lively throughout the match. The fans’ responses on Twitter seem to appreciate the player’s efforts as well.
100% in favour of Firmino doing a no-look shot from three yards out. More of this please. pic.twitter.com/IrKg8vqJPV

When you’re too cool to look at goal when scoring.
Love Firmino’s mentality man, instead of being obsessed in scoring, even in this moment he wanted to entertain the fans. This photo describes him as a player, really. pic.twitter.com/5TLrXft8We

Firmino passed his GCSE’s without looking at the exam papers

One tweet that made the rounds though, was of pundit and former Manchester United player Gary Neville, as he seemed to predict the scoreline right after Liverpool went 3-0 up.
