Liverpool wingers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane handed Jurgen Klopp’s side a 2-0 advantage in their first leg of the Champions League knock out stage against RB Leipzig in Budapest.
RB Leipzig’s second half unsettled defense saw Kevin Kampl hand Salah the opportunity to give Liverpool the lead in the 53rd minute after a barren draw in the first half.
The Egyptian wasted no time in front of goal, grabbing his 24 goal of the season in all competitions, and breaking his last season’s record of 23 goals.
Liverpool took full control of the match five minutes later when Curtis Jones collected Dayot Upamecano’s misjudged ball to set up Sadio Mane for the second of the night.
Former Manchester City full back Angelino could have pulled one back. However, his effort drifted wide, giving Liverpool a comfortable win.
The win handed Liverpool side a much-needed confidence boost after back-to-back premier league defeats.
