Liverpool players and fans celebrate reaching the Uefa Champions League final - in pictures

  • Mane and Wijnaldum on target for Liverpool in 4-2 defeat at Stadio Olimpico
  • Result sees English club advance 7-6 on aggregate
  • Klopp and players dedicate result to injured Liverpool fan Sean Cox
  • Liverpool to face Real Madrid in final in Kiev

On an emotional night in Rome, Liverpool fans and players celebrated on the Stadio Olimpico pitch as Jurgen Klopp's side clinched a place in the Uefa Champions League final later this month despite being on the wrong end of a six-goal thriller.

Although Roma won the match 4-2 on the night, Liverpool would advance 7-6 on aggregate following their 5-2 victory at Anfield in last month's first leg.

Awaiting them in Kiev on May 26 are a Real Madrid team looking to win their third straight Champions League and 13th European Cup overall.

It was an emotional night for Klopp's team. Liverpool players held up a banner reading "Sean Cox - You'll never walk alone" in tribute to the Reds fan who was left in a coma after being attacked by Roma fans at Anfield last week.

And Klopp dedicated the win to Cox, saying: "It's 100 per cent a final for Sean Cox.

"We said before the game we thought about it, now we're here, all our prayers and wishes are with him."
