MANCHESTER CITY vs. LIVERPOOL
| Tuesday, April 10th |
Champions League | Etihad Stadium
7:45PM GMT/2:45PM EST
3-0 up after an absolutely perfect first leg, so why am I suddenly so nervous? Regardless of their “halftime” lead, Liverpool will need to be firing on all cylinders in order to survive a likely Manchester City assault, and advance to the Champions League semifinals. Because of the away goal rule, a single goal for the Reds means the home side will need to score at least five. So. Let’s do that. Or, better yet, just smash ‘em like we did the last two times out. Yeah, that’s better for the nerves, surely.

FIRST HALF HIGHLIGHTS
Not much unless you’re Manchester City’s fan.
SECOND HALF HIGHLIGHTS
56’ - Salah - It took a long time after City’s early opener but Liverpool finally found their feet, held possession for a spell, and used their attacking skill to force their way through City’s defence with Mo Salah finishing cooly to give the Reds a 4-1 aggregate edge.
77’ - Firmino - And then Bob puts the tie to bed with such a cooly, cooly finish placed into the bottom corner. 2-1 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate.
