Striker Roberto Firmino fired Liverpool into the lead in their Champions League tie against Red Star Belgrade this evening after a wonderful assist.
In the 20th minute of the tie Firmino had a slight stroke of luck when his left-footed shot was deflected into the net.
It was the build-up play that really caught fans eyes though, summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri threaded a perfect pass into Andrew Robertson which split the Red Star defence in half.
Robertson then picked out Firmino with a great pass before the Brazilian took a touch and hit the back of the net with a left-footed strike.

The free flowing football on display by the Reds tonight shows that they are a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League and Champions League this season.
