Ok this is just mean.
Liverpool were already up 4-0 early in the second half. They were winning this thing. There was no need for this kind of violence.
But the strong do as they please and the weak suffer what they must. And thus, Philippe Coutinho squirmed into the box and collected a layoff from Mohamed Salah. He hit a shot from 15-ish yard and smashed it into a Spartak defender. The ball deflected off of him and flew into the back of the net, compounding the visitors’ misery and all but guaranteeing Liverpool a place in the knockout stages. It also gave Coutinho a hat trick. Suck it, Barcelona.
You almost have to feel bad for Spartak Moscow at this point.
