[Video Goals] Porto 0-5 Liverpool: Mane Nets Hat-Trick As Reds Run Riot
Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick as Liverpool all-but booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a stunning 5-0 victory over Porto.
Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick as Liverpool all-but booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a stunning 5-0 victory over Porto this evening.
The Reds opened the scoring in the 25th minute when Porto keeper Jose Sa let a straightforward Mane effort squirm through his hands and over the line for 0-1.
Liverpool doubled their lead just four minutes later when Mohamed Salah took advantage of some more poor defending to poke home from close range for 0-2.
Mane was then on hand to make it 0-3 shortly after half-time as he tapped home after Roberto Firmino’s shot was saved following a stunning break away.
It was 0-4 15 minutes later as Firmino fired home after another superb move before Mane completed his treble with a powerful strike from the edge of the area.
The victory puts Liverpool in complete control and there is virtually no chance the Merseysiders will throw away a 5-0 lead in the second leg at Anfield.
