Liverpool Versus Barcelona

Lee Westwood has compared Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final victory over Barcelona to Europe’s 2012 Ryder Cup victory at Medinah.

According to huge football fan Westwood, the improbability of the win ranks it alongside the ‘Miracle at Medinah’, where Europe recovered from a 10-4 deficit to win 14½-13½ .
