Trent Alexander-Arnold provided a moment of pure class, with a brilliant ball for Luis Diaz, as Sadio Mane doubled Liverpool's lead against Benfica.
Liverpool are favourites for this year's Champions League, so they were expected to make pretty easy work of Benfica in the quarter finals on Tuesday.
Even with one eye on their big Premier League game with Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp still sent out a strong team against their Portuguese opponents.
It didn't take long for them to take the lead, as Ibrahima Konate scored in the 17th minute, and in, double that time, they doubled their lead.
Former Tottenham Hotspur man Adel Taarabt gave away the ball, it was given to Alexander-Arnold and the right back played the most beautiful long range pass for Diaz to run onto.
The former Porto forward, playing against his old rivals, headed the ball down for Mane to finish easily.

Wow Trent. You leave any type of gap for the lad & he’ll find it. It’s just a ridiculous level of playmaking that we’re seeing from him.— Raj Chohan (@rajsinghchohan) April 5, 2022
Klopp's side have already won the Carabao Cup this season and their recent form, mixed in with City dropping points, have taken them to within one point of Pep Guardiola's side.
With a semi final of the FA Cup to come against their closest rivals as well, they really are looking like potentially winning the Quadruple, and going one better than Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United side from 1999.
Getting Benfica in the quarter finals of the Champions League definitely would have been seen as a positive for the six time European champions.
The goals by Konate and Alexander-Arnold in the opening 45 minutes will already make them huge favourites to advance to the semi-final, where they'll play either Bayern Munich or Villarreal.
