Mumbai Police’s Twitter handle on Wednesday gave yet another example of its witty, smart one-liners when it put out a tweet trolling FC Barcelona's oversight which led to a fourth goal against Liverpool in the second leg of the Champions League semifinal at Anfield.

"Be it the road to a final, or way back home - being distracted cost dear even to the mightiest. It can cost you dearly too. SafetyGoals LIVBAR", the Twitter handle wrote.

It was a night for unlikely heroes and Trent Alexander-Arnold's quickly taken corner allowed Origi to smash high into the net 11 minutes from time – inflicting a humbling defeat upon La Liga champion Barca and the great Lionel Messi even more punishing than the side's surrender at Roma in last season's quarterfinal.

Liverpool's remarkable 4-3 aggregate triumph means a June 1 final against Ajax or Tottenham - and the chance to right the wrongs of last season's fall to Real Madrid at the last hurdle - awaits.

Since its Twitter debut in December 2015, Mumbai Police has fast become one of the most popular accounts on Twitter. The accounts are handled not only by police officers, but also by a bunch of young social media consultants, who are responsible for the puns that also serve as awareness messages.
