UCL: Liverpool comeback sinks Manchester City

Second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino ensured Liverpool reached the semi-finals.

Liverpool advanced to the last four with a 5-1 aggregate victory against Manchester City thanks to second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg, City made the early inroad they needed when Raheem Sterling burst away and crossed for Gabriel Jesus to sweep past Loris Karius inside two minutes. Josep Guardiola’s charges dominated the remainder of the half and came close to making it two when Bernardo Silva’s deflected drive struck a post.

Liverpool weathered the storm, however, and pounced to equalise when Salah rounded Ederson and clipped in after Sadio Mané’s piercing run has been halted in the box. Any lingering doubts for the visitors were dismissed 13 minutes from time when Firmino robbed Nicolás Otamendi and fired in off the post.3
