It had been nine long years since the Reds last had a knockout stage game to look forward to in Europe’s top club competition – the quarter-final loss to Chelsea in 2008/09.
With the Champions League relatively open by recent standards this season, a positive result at Estadio do Dragao would help Jurgen Klopp‘s side get another little step closer to, albeit unlikely, glory in Kiev in May.
- Reds’ first CL knockout stage clash since 2008/09
- Klopp makes three changes; Lovren, Henderson & Milner come in
- Mane & Salah fire visitors into 2-0 half-time lead
- Mane get his second and Firmino makes it 4-0
- Senegalese completes his hat-trick on incredible night
Liverpool didn’t settle…
