[VIDEO] Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino Lead Liverpool To A 2-1 Win Against Man City In Champions League Quarter-Finals
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were familiar heroes as Liverpool reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in a decade with a 2-1 second-leg win at Manchester City that sealed a 5-1 aggregate victory.
Gabriel Jesus had stirred hopes of an improbable comeback when he struck inside two minutes but a dominant first-half display in which Bernardo Silva hit the post and Leroy Sane saw a goal wrongly disallowed failed to yield further reward.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, who stunned the Premier League champions-elect with a 3-0 win at a frenzied Anfield, knew an away goal would make City’s task tougher still, and after Salah delivered the demoralising punch (56), Firmino added further insult (77) as the hosts ran out of steam.
While City’s wait for Champions League success continues, Pep Guardiola sent to the stands for his Sane protests, six-time winners Liverpool can dream of writing a further chapter in their storied European history.
