Liverpool club after the match with six goals against Benfica Lisbon in the semi-finals of the first division

Liverpool club after the match with six goals against Benfica Lisbon in the semi-finals of the first division

Compared to the first game in the Premier League against Manchester City, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is in rotation almost completely today. Only Alisson, Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson and Diogo Jota were in the starting line-up again.

The Reds looked calm, although the first minutes were marked by an unusually high number of bad passes from both sides. Everton’s performance was especially evident in the ranks of Benfica, but in the 13th minute of the match, his most dangerous shot went off the left post. With every passing minute, Liverpool got better and better in the match.

Thus, the English rewarded themselves with the lead. Ibrahima Konate ran after a corner kick and, as in the first leg, nodded from a few meters away to take a 1-0 lead (21). Benfica was unmoved and, surprisingly, equalized the score in time. After a pressure shot between James Milner and Diego Goncalves, the match tool reached Goncalo Ramos, who shot from the edge of the penalty area and hit the ball in the left area (32).

The Reds’ dominance continued and it wasn’t long into the second half before they reclaimed the lead. Within ten minutes, Roberto Firmino scored his double and hit Liverpool early in the semi-finals. First, the Brazilian pushed a cross pass from Diogo Jota over the line (55), then he hit a ball from Konstantinos Tsimikas into the net (65).

Despite winning the match, Benfica took advantage of the Reds’ lack of concentration at times in the last quarter of the hour. Roman Yarimchuk, who took part in the break, cut the difference to 2:3 (73) before Darwin Nunez could equalize (82). Despite the goals, Liverpool held onto the lead over time without any major problems and deserved to qualify for the semi-finals.

As the day progressed, Jürgen Klopp put together another great statistic.

It was remarkable: it was a difficult evening for the referee

The excitement of the Benfica players and fans was high when their goal to make the score 3-2 was disallowed. The VAR intervened and corrected the decision: No offside. Oddly enough, that wasn’t the end of it, because the same thing happened in 3:3. In overtime, the flag was again raised after Núñez’s supposed goal to make it 4:3, but this time it was the right decision.

Stats: 50

Today, Joel Matip celebrated his 50th appearance in the First Division. The Cameroonian did not particularly stand out, but he did not make any mistakes either. Congratulation!
