On this day in 2001, Liverpool knocked Barcelona out in UCL semi-final
Gary McAllister's first-half penalty was enough to take Liverpool to their ninth European final and first in 16 years. The 1-0 aggregate victory was built on towering defensive performance, epitomized by the efforts of Sami Hyypia and Stephane Henchoz, whose team had conceeded just one goal over six games against Roma, Porto and Barcelona.
The Barcelona team included Puyol, Petit, Luis Enrique, Guardiola, Overmars, Rivaldo and Kluivert.
