Liverpool go one better with a 6-1 victory in their second leg Europa League match against Sparta Prague, following their 5-1 away victory the previous week

It was always going to be strange when you turn up to a football stadium with the home team already 5-1 up from the first leg. Even stranger that Liverpool started and ended this match with a very strong line up on the pitch when they were already so far in front in the tie.

With both Salah and Nunez starting it was not going to take long for the scoring to restart again. A great one-two between Salah and Nunez before the latter lashed the ball into the bottom corner of the net with just seven minutes on the clock.

In the blink of an eye it was 2-0. Salah put pressure on the Sparta defence and the defender panicked and deflected the ball off Salah which fell to Bobby Clarke who scored his first goal for Liverpool.

With only 10 minutes on the clock Mo Salah made it 3-0 and also broke another club record – seventh season in a row with over 20 goals in all competitions. It was two assists and a goal in the first 10 minutes of action for the King of Anfield.

The Liverpool faithful did not have to wait long for goal number four. Gakpo lashed the ball into the net with still only 14 minutes played!

Nunez, Salah and Clark continued the onslaught on the Prague defence in the first half but couldn’t add any further goals. To be fair the Prague players lept on trying despite conceding four and they got a consolation goal back just before halftime. Birmanceviv  broke free and slotted it past Kelleher to give them a deserved goal much to the delight of the away fans in the stadium.

The second half started like the first half ended. Szoboszlai shot deflecting into the Prague net to make it 5-1 on the night. Things didn’t get any easier for Prague with Robertson and Virgil coming on and Salah staying on for the whole match.

The visitors however continued to battle hard in the second half and only conceded one further goal. An Eliott shot from 20 yards out getting a neat little flick from Gakpo making it two for him on the night and 6-1 altogether.

With the final aggregate score finishing 11-2 to Liverpool they will be full of confidence as they advance to the quarter finals against Atalanta.
