Real Madrid crushed Mohammed Salah’s Liverpool 5-2 at home, effectively advancing the LaLiga powerhouses to the next round of the Champions League.
Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah gave the Reds a great start, while Vinicius Junior’s looping goal started the comeback. The teams were tied at the interval after Alisson Becker slammed the ball off Vinicius Jr.
Eder Militao gave Carlo Ancelotti’s team the lead by heading home Luka Modric’s free-kick, before Karim Benzema scored two stunning goals to wrap up the scoring.
Then, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp substituted Cameroonian international Joel Matip for the error-prone Joe Gomez in order to plug the defensive gap. In an effort to cut the deficit in the Champions League match, he also added Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino.
The Reds had such a strong start, but what happened next revealed the true quality difference between them and the current European champions. Several fans worry that such a poor outcome would affect Liverpool’s quest for a top-four Premier League finish.
