Diogo Jota opened the scoring with a Trent Alexander Arnold assist and Liverpool lead the game by 1: 0 in the early hour of that game. Liverpool have a 12points in the group after the 4th game with 2games to spare.
The reds are 12points in the table and have a 100 percent so far this season and they sit 1st in the group B table. With a win today it shows that the red have qualified for the champions league round of 16.
Atletico madrid at the early stage were threatening the Liverpool defends and joa Felix and him were unable to connect well with each other ,which made then not to pose more attacking threat to the Liverpool defends today.
Liverpool played another good football as Sadio mane was coming from the midfield and was able to find his colleague and then the ball was given to Arnold which he cross back to Mane and Mane was able to find the back of the net in the first half of the game .
Despite the home team leading by 2: 0 down, the Atletico man had a red in the process of tackling Sadio mane. It doesn't seem like a red card though but Felipe was sent off at 37mins of the game.
Despite the red card the Atletico Madrid coach was unable to make a change in the first half.
But Jurgen Klopp made a substitute by bringing out Sadio Mane for Roberto Firmino. Mane was substituted because he had a yellow card and if anything should happen he will be sent off and not play against their next opponent.
At 49minutes that they have scored through am assist from Matip to Jota who could have scored 2 for himself and 3 for Liverpool but sadly the goal was offside.
Trent Alexander Arlnold the hero?
Arnold produced a superb assist which lead to the two goals in the first half, this shows that the Liverpool young lad is still showing his quality as one of the best defender in the world.Arnold was exceptional in the game which he helped his team both in the attack and in the defence and the team was able to keep a clean sheet at the end of the game. But at the last minute of the game Arnold was substituted by Nathaniel Philips who came in to finish the game and make his first champions league appearance of the season.
Has Mohammed salah scoring streak come to am end?
Mohamed salah was outstanding in the game, and he lacks clear cutting edges to find the back of the net.
Salah was able to create chances both for himself and his team mates , but despite all he was unable to find the back of the net. But what whats wrong with salah not scoring a goal today? I feel at a point he wanted to score by himself which he really didn't have that opportunity to do so.
But I am expecting salah to get back to firing again as he loves scoring for form.
Up next Liverpool face Fc porto at Anfield in the fifth game before returning to Italy to battle with the Italian giants,but I am tipping Liverpool to continue with the 100% percent record in the champions league.
