  • FIRMINO FOR LIVERPOOL! 1-0! It's another Champions League goal for the Reds star, following a lovely piece of build-up play. Shaqiri slots a throughball down the left flank, onto which Robertson latches, before the Scotland man plays a perfect cut-back to his striker. The Brazilian has time to spare, chooses his shot and places it neatly into the centre of the net. Excellent stuff from the hosts.

  • SALAH MAKES IT TWO! 2-0! It's a look of sheer relief on the face of the Liverpool striker as his fellow players crowd him to celebrate. Shaqiri picks out Wijnaldum's throughball on the right of the box and taps in for the Egyptian, who takes one look and slips it in at the near post past Borjan. The hosts have a proper hold on this encounter now.

  • Penalty to Liverpool! Mane goes down in the box following a foolish challenge from Stojkovic and though the referee looks set to let play continue, he gives it a moment later following a word from his assistant. Red Star can't believe it as the right-back is booked. Salah will take the spot-kick for the hosts.

  • SALAH MAKES IT 3-0! It's a lovely penalty; Salah shapes to go left and instead blasts it to the centre-right with an excellent strike. Again, his celebrations are muted – but around Anfield, the cheers ring true. Liverpool in total control of this tie.

  • Tempers flare on the touchline as Jovicic comes in on Robertson and is booked for the challenge. The Red Star man does not like that decision one bit and is lucky to not see a second straight away for dissent as the referee tells him to calm down.

  • BUT NOW MANE GETS HIS GOAL! 4-0! This has been a rout for Liverpool and it's a comedy goal to add the latest touch of gloss. Sturridge flicks a neat throughball on the angle in for the striker and he slips in trying to reach it - but his outstretched leg does enough to push it gently under Borjan's arms and in at the left post.
