Sadio Mane Puts Liverpool Ahead Vs Red Bull Salzburg With Brilliant Goal

Sadio Mane Puts Liverpool Ahead Vs Red Bull Salzburg With Brilliant Goal

Sadio Mane scored with a classy finish after an excellent solo run to put Liverpool ahead against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League.

Defending champions Liverpool were looking to get their European campaign back on target after losing their opening group game away to Napoli on Matchday One and Mane put them on their way.

In just the ninth minute Mane collected a pass from Andy Robertson, ran past one defender, played a one-two with Roberto Firmino to take out three opposition players, and then slotted past the Salzburg goalkeeper.

The goal was the former Southampton forward's 15th in the Champions League for Liverpool, making him just the third Reds' player to reach the milestone after Steven Gerrard, who finished his career with 21, and Mo Salah, who had 15 before the game kicked off.

After Mane put Jurgen Klopp's side ahead it wasn't long until they had doubled their lead when Robertson got one for himself.

The left back started the move himself with a run into the Salzburg half before passing the ball and continuing his run into the box.

The ball went right to Trent Alexander-Arnold who crossed into the box, where it was met by Robertson who shot into the back of the net.

Salah soon made it three, scoring his 16th in the competition for the Reds, in the 36th minute, but their three goal advantage didn't last very long.

Just three minutes later South Korean forward Hwang Hee-chan made Virgil van Dijk look like a fool, leaving UEFA's Player of the Year stumbling as he was turned inside out and Hwang made it 3-1 before half-time.

After losing in Naples on the opening day of this season's Champions League, Klopp will be very encouraged by the opening 45 minute Wednesday night.
