Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Carlos Bacca performance for Sevilla

Sevilla Football Club

The Colombian striker scored with a clinical finish, as Sevilla booked their place in the Europa League final.

Given the reports over recent months, situating Liverpool with more than just a passing interest in Carlos Bacca, fans of the Merseyside club have been keeping a keen eye on his performances.

On Thursday night and with Sevilla in Europa League action, all eyes were focused on the Colombian striker, and viewers weren't disappointed.

3-0 up from the first-leg, Sevilla were hoping to get an early goal, thus killing off any resistance from Fiorentina. Bacca duly obliged for his side in the 22nd minute.

Ever dangerous from set-pieces, Sevilla made the most of their opportunity, as Ever Banega swung the ball into the Fiorentina area. Timing his movement to perfection, losing his marker, Bacca controlled well, before applying the finish.

Just the sort of clinical quality, that Liverpool fans perhaps feel their side have been missing this season.

In all competitions this season, Bacca has now made 54 appearances and scored 25 goals. Along with his eye for hitting the back of the net, the Colombian is also an excellent team player, who has also contributed 8 assists.

Clearly a player who would potentially be a great addition at Anfield next season, Liverpool fans offered their thoughts on Twitter.
