  • LIVERPOOL LEAD AGAIN! Putting his side three goals in front on aggregate, Firmino takes advantage of an error by Vlachodimos, whose mistake ultimately sees the ball fall to Jota. The Portugal international then crosses for his Brazilian colleague to tap home from close range! It's 2-1 to Liverpool; 5-2 overall!
