Watch: Salah’s Deflected Goal Gives Liverpool The Lead



With time running out in the first half, Liverpool were looking to build on their momentum and maybe take the lead before heading in for the break. And boy did they get it.

Mohamed Salah— gosh, I love him so much, I really really do— got the ball outside the box and tried to line up a shot. He ultimately decided to try and thread the needle and shoot through traffic.

A Sevilla defender tried to block the shot but instead sent it on a looping trajectory into the box. The keeper couldn’t figure out what to do about it in time and it sailed, inexplicably, into the net.

Fluky? Sure. But I’ll take it all day long.
