Ballon d’Or nominees Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah scored and assisted a goal apiece as Liverpool recorded a convincing 4-1 win over Genk in the Uefa Champions League on Wednesday evening.

The defending champions were already home and hosed by the time Nigerian forward Stephen Odey bagged a mere consolation for the hosts.

It was a disappointing evening for African pair Andre Onana and Hakim Ziyech as Ajax Amsterdam fell to a 1-0 loss at home to Chelsea. The Dutch giants, though, remain top of Group H despite the result.

Peter Olayinka was also on the end of some bad luck for Slavia Prague as he diverted the ball into the back of his own net in a 2-1 loss at home to Barcelona.

In Lille, Victor Osimhen played the full match as the French club conjured a late draw against 10-man Valencia. Jonathan Ikone bagged the 95th minute equaliser for the hosts.

Champions League action will resume in two weeks time, with all of matchday four’s action a repeat of the matches on matchday three.

Full list of results:

Ajax 0-1 Chelsea

RB Leipzig 2-1 Zenit

Benfica 2-1 Lyon

Genk 1-4 Liverpool

Inter 2-0 Dortmund

Lille 1-1 Valencia

Salzburg 2-3 Napoli

Slavia Prague 1-2 Barcelona
