The 25-year-old, who started the game on the bench, found the back of the net in the 49th minute after coming on as a half-time substitute for Andre Gomes.

After the match, the Brazilian told members of the media that he had been hoping to score a goal a lot sooner, and is delighted that it finally came in an important game.

"It's a very happy day," Coutinho told GOL after the match.

"I was looking for the goal in the first few games and today I got it and, most importantly, helped the team reach the final.

"It's a special moment. It'll be a great game and a difficult one (against Sevilla in the final). We have time to prepare ourselves.

"It's my first final and it's a special and important moment for me, but there are a lot of moments to play before the final."
