On the eve of the 2018 Champions League final in Kiev, we celebrate the anniversary of Liverpool's most recent triumph on Europe's grandest stage.

Thirteen years ago today, the Miracle of Istanbul occurred.

May 25 was already a date etched in Liverpool's European folklore. On this day in 1977, the Reds won the trophy for the first time.

But 2005 brought arguably the best European Cup final of all time, as Liverpool came from 3-0 down to beat the mighty AC Milan on penalties.

Nobody will ever forget the six minutes of madness in the second half that saw Steven Gerrard, Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso level things up.

Jerzy Dudek's unbelievable save from Andriy Shevchenko in extra-time then confirmed what everyone already knew by then - it was meant to be.
