The footage then cuts to the Pique family home where Shakira is watching the game with her children.

One of the kids says, ‘If it stays like this, it doesn’t matter. We’ll go through to the final’ and Shakira replies ‘Yes honey’.

The child continues ‘But..’, only to be interrupted by the Anfield roar.

Shakira shouts ‘No! I can’t believe it! No!’ and grabs her son before turning away from the screen, refusing to believe what she has seen.

She was reacting to to Gini Wijnaldum’s towering header which leveled the aggregate score on 54 minutes, Liverpool’s third goal of the evening.

And just two minutes later, the Reds completed their sensational comeback when Divock Origi lashed Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick into the top corner.

The clip features in the trailer for a new documentary series, ‘Matchday’, showing FC Barcelona ‘from the inside’. It will be premiere on Rakuten TV later this month.
