Salah scores for Liverpool after silky 7-pass staff transfer
In the 69th minute of today’s Champions League knockout game between Liverpool and RB Leipzig, a deep Mohamed Salah passed the ball to Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Liverpool’s homemade pass master hovered a ball over the right flank, Diogo Jota expertly controlled it before handing it to Salah.
Salah made a touch before moving it to the center to Thiago Alcantara, who quickly passed it on to Sadio Mane.
Mane chose the darts run across the field of Jota, the Portuguese superstar showed decent ability to push him to Salah.
Salah took a touch and slid into Dayot Upamecano, making the Bayern Munich center-back look like an average player who opened up the space to drill the ball into the lower corner.
Jürgen Klopp will be delighted with the silky team move with seven passes that won the Champions League tie for the Reds in a second leg previously compromised by the lack of a clinical grade.
