Eypt Star Mohammed Salah Scores Twice As Liverpool Beat Red Star

 

 

Mohamed Salah scored twice to reach a half-century of Liverpool goals in a comfortable victory over Red Star Belgrade, as the Reds went top of Champions League Group C.

It was a dominant display from the hosts, Roberto Firmino firing in Andy Robertson’s cut-back on 20 minutes.

Salah got his first just before the break then added a second to reach an impressive landmark by converting a penalty won by Sadio Mane.

Mane then slotted a fourth goal with 10 minutes to go, having missed another penalty just moments before.

Goalscorers aside, Xherdan Shaqiri proved influential for the hosts – an excellent through ball to Robertson helped set up Firmino’s opener and it was the Swiss player’s flick that then assisted Salah’s first goal.

Firmino, one of five players back in the starting line-up after a depleted Reds side narrowly beat Huddersfield in the league on Saturday, marked his return with his 13th goal in 18 Champions League appearances for the club and his 10th in eight games at Anfield.

Mane was also bright – he linked up well with Salah on numerous occasions and earned his side’s first penalty when he got an arm in the face from Red Star captain Filip Stojkovic.

He made up for missing the second penalty – won when El Fardou Ben handled in the area – by sliding in to poke into the bottom corner to make it 4-0, before substitute Adam Lallana was denied a fifth from close range.

For the visitors, Srdan Babic wasted an opportunity from a set-piece when he fired over the bar but Liverpool were dominant throughout and never looked like conceding.

Red Star, bottom of the group with one point from three games, were banned from selling tickets to supporters for the game at Anfield after incidents during and after their team’s play-off round tie away to RB Salzburg on 29 August.

Former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has blasted Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo over his move to Italian League champions Juventus.

The 33-year-old ended his nine year reign with Real Madrid after the 2018 FIFA World Cup and sealed a move to the Allianz Stadium to join the Old Lady in a deal around £99 million.

He has since then scored 14 goals and created five assists in 19 league matches, as Allegri’s men sit atop of the log with 53 points – nine points better than Napoli.

ESPN however reports that the former Manchester United forward believes Ronaldo could have gone to a more lower club and prove his quality there.

The 37-year-old insisted that the Portuguese star joined a team that has won the league title in the last six years.

“Cristiano Ronaldo calls it a challenge to go to a team already armed, that has been winning the Serie A,” Ibrahimovic told ESPNFC.

“Several years ago, why not go to a second division club to become the champion and take the team to the 1st. Bulls**t, going to Juve is no challenge. “

Ibrahimovic on the other hand joined Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy in 2018 and in his first year at the club scored 22 goals and six assists in 27 matches for the franchise.

That was after spending close to one and a half season at Manchester United where he scored 17 goals in 33 topflight matches, and also won the Europa and EFL Cup in his first season.
