Sevilla troll Liverpool & Man City with Champions League comeback reminder

The Reds put three past Pep Guardiola's side without reply and the Spanish outfit poked fun at both English teams

Sevilla have cheekily reminded Liverpool that a 3-0 lead in the Champions League does not always guarantee success, offering Manchester City a glimmer of hope in their quarter-final tie.

City were on the end of a crushing defeat at Anfield on Wednesday, as Liverpool produced a stirring display which had them 3-0 up by the 31st minute of the first leg.

In-form Mohamed Salah got the first, before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's long-range thunderbolt and a Sadio Mane goal put the Reds in cruise control.

The result leaves Pep Guardiola's men staring at a likely exit, despite being considered among the favourites to lift the trophy in Kiev.

But Sevilla gave a timely reminder of their exploits against Liverpool in November, as they came from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan – Guido Pizarro netting a last-gasp equaliser.

From their official Twitter account, the Liga club posted: "3-0 down to Liverpool? Been there, done that."

City host Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday and they will look to follow Sevilla's lead and claw back a three-goal deficit.
