Liverpool Routs Red Star, Reclaims Champions League Group C Top Spot

Liverpool returned to the top of UFEFA Champions League Group C after a 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday night at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino made the breakthrough when he fired home from Andy Robertson’s low cross inside the opening 20 minutes before Mohamed Salah grabbed the second on the stroke of half-time.

Salah then converted from the penalty spot in the early stages of the second half to claim his 50th goal for the Reds in just his 65th appearance.

Sadio Mane had another spot-kick pushed onto the crossbar, but quickly made amends by stabbing in a fourth moments later to seal the win — a result which puts Liverpool back in top spot in the group after Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli played out a 2-2 draw in France.
