Salah scores FOR Liverpool against Hoffenheim
Egypt’s Mohamed Salah was on target as Liverpool convincingly defeated Hoffenheim 4-2 at Anfield on Wednesday to reach the Champions League group phase for only the second time since 2010.
Germany midfielder Emre Can found the net twice in the opening 21 minutes, either side of Salah’s first Anfield goal following his move from Roma, before substitute Mark Uth replied for the visitors.
Hoffenheim old boy Roberto Firmino netted a fourth goal in the second half and Sandro Wagner’s late header proved anecdotal as Jurgen Klopp’s men completed a 6-3 aggregate victory.
Now unbeaten in 15 home games against German teams, Liverpool will learn their group-stage opponents in Thursday’s draw in Monaco, which will feature five English clubs for the first time.
