Liverpool edged out Salzburg 4-3 on Wednesday at Anfield in a dramatic UEFA Champions League Group E encounter.
In a dominant opening half, Sadio Mane netted against his former club to set the Reds on their way after nine minutes, playing a one-two with Roberto Firmino inside the box before steering home.
Andy Robertson doubled the advantage midway through the first half when he capped a fine team move that he had begun by touching Trent Alexander-Arnold’s centre in from close range.
Mohamed Salah swept in a third, pouncing after Firmino’s header had been saved by Cican Stankovic, but Hee-Chan Hwang reduced the deficit prior to half-time before Takumi Minamino grabbed a second for the visitors after the break.
Substitute Erling Braut Haaland then tapped in the tying goal to complete Salzburg’s spirited comeback on the hour mark.
However, Salah drilled a Firmino flick in at the Kop end to put Liverpool back in front and ultimately secure an important victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
