The Guinea international picked up an adductor injury early on in last week’s Champions League semi-final first leg at Camp Nou.
So he had to view tonight’s game at Anfield from home, where he’s recovering from that injury.
Keita looked understandably nervous as Liverpool held on to their 4-0 lead in added time – and that quickly turned to delight when the full-time whistle went.
What’s sad is that Keita wasn’t part of it and won’t play any part in the Champions League final at the start of next month:
That’s a shame for Keita – but he still looks so happy for his teammates after tonight’s memorable result.
Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum scored two each to give Liverpool the 4-0 win, but it was an outstanding team performance that really earned the victory.
Now they’ll watch on as Ajax and Tottenham go up against each other in the other semi-final, with the Dutch side leading 1-0 from the first leg.
