On the stroke of halftime Liverpool extended their lead against Serbian minnows Red Star Belgrade through star man Mohamed Salah.
After an ambitious pass forward from Georginio Wijnaldum summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri produces an outrageous first touch pass which teed Salah up perfectly to smash the ball into the back of the net on his weaker right foot.
Shaqiri has been a standout performer for Liverpool in the first half and the former Stoke man also had a hand to play in Firmino’s opener earlier in the half.
