Salah scores as Liverpool thrash Spartak Moscow 7-0

Salah scores as Liverpool thrash Spartak Moscow 7-0

There are some notable teams among those to have finished second in their group in this Champions League phase, with Real Madrid and Juventus in the pack Liverpool could face in Monday's last-16 draw.

Sadio Mane gets a recall in attack as he plays alongside Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino. The number nine spotted the run of his Brazilian counterpart at the edge of the box and delivered an inch flawless pass for Coutinho, whose left-footed shot sent Spartak goalkeeper Alexander Selikhov the wrong way.

It is Liverpool's second 7-0 win in the group following their victory by the same scoreline against Maribor in Slovenia in October.

With the Merseyside Derby in mind subs rolled on for Liverpool as they shifted into second gear, controlling much of the possession.

Liverpool's early onslaught began from the spot, Coutinho coolly sending the goalkeeper the wrong way after Salah had been dragged down by Giorgi Jikia. They have scored three goals or more in seven of those matches. Liverpool had failed to score its last four penalties at Anfield, including attempts by Firmino and James Milner in the Champions League.

It is also why Coutinho's value remains innumerable to Liverpool, with a direct hand in 15 goals from his last 11 appearances.

Cristiano Ronaldo set a Champions League record by scoring for Real Madrid in their 3-2 win over Borussia Dortmund, becoming the first player to find the back of the net in all six group games.

It is the first time a country has had five representatives in the knockout stage of Europe's top club competition, signaling a revival by the English after years of underachievement since Chelsea was European champion in 2012.

In the 85th minute, Salah finally got his long-sought goal after receiving the ball inside of the box, fakes a shot that led two defenders to collide with each other before shooting with his right foot straight into the top corner.

Liverpool can secure a first place finish in their group with a win tonight.
