What Liverpool fans did on Wikipedia after reaching the CL final was very cheeky

Liverpool are on the brink of achieving something truly special this season.

In an end-to-end Champions League semi-final second leg with AS Roma, the Reds scored twice away from home to secure their place in the final.

As a result, only Real Madrid stand in the way of a sixth European title for the Merseyside club.

Sadio Mane ensured Liverpool got off to the perfect start on Wednesday night, scoring on the counterattack before a freak own goal from James Milner levelled the scores on the night.

Georginio Wijnaldum then picked the perfect time to score his first goal away from home for Liverpool – heading past Alisson to bag a second for the visitors.

Roma then went on the offensive, needing four goals to force extra-time and ultimately falling short with three.

Edin Dzeko stirred hopes of a comeback after the hour mark, Radja Nainggolan then found the net with a trademark long shot before bagging another from the penalty spot.

The aggregate score eventually read 7-6 with the Liverpool players and staff jubilantly celebrating their victory in front of the travelling supporters.

And it’s fair to say there was plenty of reason to celebrate.

Some Kopites have already booked their flights and accommodation for the trip to Kiev, some went into the town in Rome and others simply lapped up the atmosphere.

Then, there’s the few Liverpool supporters who decided that Wikipedia was the perfect platform to celebrate reaching the Champions League final.

One cheeky fan took aim at the page of Roma’s stadium, changing the name of the ground from ‘Stadio Olimpico’ to ‘Sadio Olimpico’ and declaring in the description that the stadium was named after Mane.

Take a look at the edit below:

Brilliant stuff.

It’s not the first time football fans have rushed to Wikipedia after a big match and it won’t be the last.

As apt as it may seem that Roma’s ground is named after Mane for his impressive performance last night, that’s sadly not the case and Wikipedia have now amended the article.

Sorry Liverpool fans, but the ground has sported its named ever since 1960 when it played host to the summer Olympics of that year.

Kopites now have 23 days to prepare themselves for their biggest game since 2007.

Fans will be hoping that the events in Kiev will resemble 2005 more than 2007, though.
