Salah and Mane fire Liverpool into UEFA Champions League semi final

Liverpool will now face Barcelona in the semi final with the first leg coming up on 1 May.

Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mané were both on the score sheet as Liverpool brushed aside FC Porto 4-1 in a UEFA Champions League match played last night.

Mané opened the scoring against the run of play in the 26th minute, sliding home a scuffed shot from Salah. There were suspicions of offside which Porto protested but the goal was confirmed by VAR. Salah slotted home in the second half finishing off a swift counter attack to make it 2-0.

Porto pulled one back through a Eder Militao header from a corner but further goals from Fabinho and Virgil Van Dijk sealed the win for the Reds who advanced 6-1 on aggregate.
