Liverpool, Real prevail in CL matches

Liverpool, Real prevail in CL matches

The win came in Liverpool's first Champions League knockout in nine years, the last being the second leg loss to Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the competition in 2009.

Mane and Salah, who reached the landmark of 30 goals for the season with a piece of breath-taking improvisation, struck before the half-hour mark to put Liverpool in charge. However, things crumbled quickly for the hosts in the 25 minute once Mané, who now has six goals in five Champions League matches, capitalized on an bad mistake by goalkeeper Jose Sa to score and open the floodgates for what ended up being a 65-minute assault on Porto's goal.

The Egypt global has been in scintillating form in the Premier League this season and Salah warmed up for the return of the Champions League with three goals in his last two top-flight outings.

The Reds, competing at this stage of the competition for the first time since 2009, scored twice in the first half and three times in the second to take complete control ahead of next month's second leg.

Sergio Conceicao refused to be too downbeat despite Porto's 5-0 humbling at the hands of Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday.


Take a look through the gallery above to see how the Liverpool players performed during their 5-0 win over FC Porto. "It's not over yet but we have a good advantage for the second leg".

Five minutes later it was Salah's turn, as the Egyptian produced some outrageous skill to round the keeper and double the lead following James Milner's post rattling curler.

"We needed to play as a team and that's what we did", said Mane. In this game it was possible, usually it's not that easy.

Already facing a record home European defeat, the hosts were sliced apart again in the 69th minute as Mane won the ball, burst forward and released Milner whose low pass into the centre was turned in by Firmino. But it's of course very important for us. It's fair to say they did that and more in their display at Porto. At half time he told to score more goals and I tried. "I enjoyed the fifth goal the most".

Mane got his third with a driven strike late on to become the first Liverpool player to score a hat-trick away from home in Europe since Michael Owen in 2002, and the second ever.
