Liverpool 4 – Hoffenheim 2
Liverpool produced an excellent display at Anfield on Wednesday evening to seal their spot in the Champions League group stages.
The Merseyside giants always looked in control of the tie thanks to a fine first half performance. Having already lead 2-1 from the first leg in Germany.
Emre Can was the hero of the first half, scoring two goals. Mohamed Salah also notched during the opening 45.
Hoffenheim scored twice at Anfield but Roberto Firmino’s fourth meant a 6-3 aggregate win for Liverpool.

Jamie Carragher claimed that Mane is more important than Philippe Coutinho on Monday Night Football.
Whilst Steven Gerrard is such a fan of Mane that he produced an amusing video from BT Sport on Instagram last night.
It features Gerrard responding to Gary Lineker with a short rendition of the Sadio Mane song.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has already spoken about his desire to face Liverpool…
