Watch Mohamed Salah’s Goal against Sevilla in the Champions League
Egypt’s Mohamed Salah scored his fourth goal for Liverpool since joining in the summer but the English side were denied in an exciting 2-2 draw with Sevilla in their Champions League group E opener at Anfield on Wednesday.
Liverpool paid a heavy price for a first-half penalty miss as Sevilla grabbed a late equaliser.
The Premier League side had been cruising after overcoming the shock of Wissam Ben Yedder’s fifth-minute goal to lead 2-1 at halftime.
But Roberto Firmino, who had scored Liverpool’s first on 21 minutes, struck a post with a penalty just before the break, shortly after Mohamed Salah had put them ahead.
Despite Liverpool dominating much of the second period, their defending again let them down and it was Sevilla who scored through Joaquin Correa.
