24 min This is glorious entertainment! Real break four on three, maybe four on four, but Vinicius’s pass towards Valverde is crucially cut out by Gomez. His positioning was really good there.
20.26 GMT22 min I mean, this isn’t entirely without precedent.
It’s another memorable goal. Vinicius shuffled infield from the left, lend the ball to Benzema for a couple of seconds and then, despite being surrounded by Liverpool defenders, made just enough room to hammer a curling shot that beat the diving Alisson and nestled in the far corner. That was a helluva strike.
GOAL! Liverpool 2-1 Real Madrid (Vinicius Jr 21)
And that’s why they didn’t panic.
20 min Madrid have been here before, and they don’t look remotely flustered – at least not when they are in possession.
18 min Madrid continue to look dangerous at both ends. Carvajal’s clear, cushioned header releases Rodrygo in the area, but his low cross is behind Benzema.
20.21 GMT17 min I mean, where do you start.
ANFIELD ERUPTS AGAIN! 📢
