Luis Suarez's celebration after scoring against Liverpool evokes hilarious Twitter reactions
- Liverpool fans were far from happy with Luis Suarez after he celebrated against them.
Barcelona have taken a big step towards booking their place in the finals of the Champions League as they beat Liverpool 3-0 in the first leg of the semi-final at Camp Nou.
Luis Suarez opened the scoring for the Blaugrana in the 26th minute of the game before Lionel Messi doubled Barca's lead in the 75th minute by guiding the ball into an open goal after Suarez's initial effort was denied by the crossbar.
The Argentine international then scored a spectacular free-kick in the 82nd minute of the game to put the Spanish club into the driving seat to qualify for finals of the Champions League for the first time in four years.
Liverpool also created a number of decent goalscoring chances to score during the game but they failed to capitalize on them.
Former Liverpool striker Suarez celebrated after scoring Barcelona's opening goal in 26th minute, which made many of the Reds' fans really upset. The Uruguyan spent three-and-a-half seasons with the Mereysiders and scored 69 goals in 110 Premier League games during his time at Anfield.
He left the English club for Barcelona in 2014 and it was the first time he faced his former club in a competitve game since leaving.
Barcelona have already secured the La Liga title after defeating Levante 1-0 at Camp Nou last week. They will play Celta Vigo next in the league before making a trip to England to play Liverpool for the second leg. Also the Blaugrana could possibly win the treble this season, as they have also booked their place in the finals of the Copa del Rey.
On the other hand, Liverpool are chasing their first league title since 1990 and are currently second in the Premier League table, one point behind their rivals, Manchester City. They will now play Newcatsle United in the league next before hosting the Spanish giants for the return leg on April 8.
