Liverpool once again showing their ability to surprise every opponents in the Champions League as they defeated Manchester City 3-0 at Anfield on Wednesday.
Already defeating Pep Guardiola’s men 4-3 in their last Premier League meeting, The Reds were looking confident since kick off as they put on an intense pressure towards their rival.
That early pressure paid off as Mohamed Salah puts Liverpool ahead after just 12 minutes of play, giving the home side tons of confidence as they continue their game plan.
Jurgen Klopp’s men continue to get things their way as they eventually got themselves two goals up on 20 minutes, this time from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s thunderous strike.
The home team basically sealed up their fine first half display with a third goal, which was netted by Sadio Mane on 31 minutes.
Man City didn’t give up as they tried to change things around, especially in the second half, but as Liverpool started their focus on defending, there’s not enough space for Guardiola’s men inside the penalty area.
Struggling to get much room, City didn’t get themselves any away goals and must worked hard in the second leg if they still keen on turning things around in the Champions League.
In another tie, Barcelona were too strong for Italian side AS Roma as Lionel Messi and co defeated their guest 4-1 with two own goals plus Gerard Pique along with Luis Suarez’s strike.
Roma themselves lost their away for a bit, though they did manage to snatch an away goal from Edin Dzeko’s low shot, but it might not be enough for them.
