Liverpool win in the penalty shootout as they are through to the semis of the Carabao Cup

Liverpool won the quarter-final game of the Carabao Cup against Leicester City on Wednesday night in the penalty shootout after Minamino scored the equalizer in the last minute.

Liverpool FC made an amazing comeback in this quarter-final game of the Carabao Cup against Leicester City as they were trailing in the whole game before their forward Minamino scored the last-minute equalizing goal to move the match to the penalty shootout. The Reds won 5-4 in penalties which helped them to qualify for the Semifinals of the Carabao Cup and move closer to the trophy.  It was an exciting game of football from both the Premier League sides.

Jamie Vardy completed his brace in just 13 minutes of the game and Leicester was leading Liverpool FC by 2-0 in very quick succession. But, Liverpool played the way they used to play and pulled one back in just 6 minutes after Vardy’s brace. It was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who opened the scoring for the Reds. But the game didn’t stop here as Leicester found another goal and they were now leading 3-1 against Jurgen Klopp’s men. The first half ended with this scoreline and it seemed it would be difficult for the Reds to qualify for the next round. But, the second-half had other plans as Liverpool was right back into the game in terms of shots on goal and chances creation as soon as the half started.

Liverpool’s man in form Diogo Jota again named himself on the scoresheet after scoring an amazing goal in the 68th minute. Liverpool was dominating in the whole second half and was not letting Leicester create any chances on their goal and then their (Liverpool) forward, Takumi Minamino scored the last-minute equalizing goal which took the match to the penalty shootout. The penalty shootout was as exciting as the match, it ended with a scoreline of 5-4 to Liverpool. Diogo Jota took the last penalty and he converted that in goal to take Reds through to the semifinals of the Carabao Cup. Liverpool’s goalkeeper also showed his calmness on the goal in the penalty shootout as he made two important stops which helped Liverpool earn a spot in the semis.
