Before year 1976-77, Liverpool had pretty poor performances in this competition. They used to struggle in Europe under Bill Shankly. But under the Management of Bob Paisley, Liverpool created history. Under Paisley’s Management, Liverpool won this event thrice. And the first one was in 1976. This year was the start of a history in the making. After defeating Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1 in the final, the Reds won their first of 5 Champions League title.
Under a new management, Liverpool once again triumphed in Europe’s most honoured tournament. But this time, they had to do it the hard way. Reds defeated AS Roma on penalties with Alan Kennedy scoring the penalty.
