Video: Konate header gives Liverpool the lead at Anfield

Posted by

Ibrahima Konate has given Liverpool the lead in their Champions League clash with Benfica tonight with a cushioned header. 

The French defender latched onto a Kostas Tsimikas corner on the 21st minute and cushioned his header passed the Benfica keeper to make it 1-0 to the Premier League side.

The goal, which can be seen below, gives Liverpool a comfortable 4-1 lead on aggregate and should see the Reds through to the semi-finals to face Villarreal.

Benfica’s players will be kicking themselves, as no one jumped when the corner came in.
