Stepping up to take the spot-kick was midfielder Youri Tielemans who did a wonderful job of remaining calm under pressure.

Having successfully converted the spot-kick, the Belgium international has now given Brendan Rodgers’ side an important 1-0 lead. However, with the second half still to come, it is all to play for.
