Andy Robertson Recalls Missing Some Key Moments In Liverpool's 4-0 Barcelona Hammering

Liverpool's 4-0 victory over Barcelona is without doubt one of the most remarkable Champions League games of all-time.

The comeback itself was incredible, but it takes on even more significance when you consider that they would go on to win the tournament a few weeks later. The fact that they managed the result without a full compliment of players is also worth mentioning.

Not only were Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino ruled out of the game, but Andy Robertson would also be forced off due to injury at halftime.

That resulted in him missing much of the action after the interval.

Speaking to BT Sport, Robertson recalled how he actually missed Gini Wijnaldum's early second half brace due to being in the shower after his substitution.

I came off injured at halftime, so I missed the second and third goals. Somebody just kept running in and going 'goal, goal'. I was like 'what is going on?'

I tried to get ready as quick as I could. I ran out when it was 3-0. I remember when the fourth goal went in, the manager turned around and went 'what happened?'

He never seen it. I think Trent even took it too quickly for him. I just remember hugging him and saying 'I don't care!'

Klopp previously confirmed Robertson's summary of the fourth goal, saying he was preparing a substitution at the time.

Unfortunately, the most incredible moment in the history of the Champions League… I didn’t actually see it...

I saw the ball go out for a corner. I saw Trent walking over to take it. I saw [Xherdan] Shaqiri following him.

But then I turned my back because we were preparing to make a substitution. I was talking to my assistant, and… you know, I have goosebumps every time I think about it… I just heard the noise.

I turned to the pitch and I saw the ball flying into the goal. I turned back to our bench and looked at Ben Woodburn, and he said, ‘What just happened?!' And I said, ‘I have no idea!’

Robertson would recover from the injury suffered against Barcelona, going on to play the full 90 minutes in the final victory over Spurs a few weeks later.
