Salah Stars In 7-Goal Spectacle At Anfield
UEFA Champions League Report: Liverpool v AS Roma 24 April 2018
UEFA Champions League Semi-final, First Leg
Ten minutes into the second half, Liverpool scored their third goal when Salah played Mane through on goal with a clever pass and he produced a clinical finish from inside the box, 3-0.
Just after the hour mark, Salah was at the heart of the action again, this time creating space for Firmino, who tapped the ball into an empty net, 4-0.
The icing on the cake for Liverpool was their fifth goal in the 70th minute, when Firmino headed home a James Milner corner-kick, 5-0.
Roma eventually put up a fight, though, and managed to pull a goal back in the 81st minute when Edin Dzeko latched on to a lofted pass from Radja Nainggolan inside the box and showed great control before firing beyond the keeper, 5-1.
Five minutes later, the visitors pulled a second goal back with Diego Perotti converting from the penalty spot after Milner handled the ball inside the box, 5-2.
The second leg of the semi-final will take place next week Wednesday, 2 May, at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
