Liverpool got back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over RB Leipzig in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday evening.

African duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane starred for the Reds at the Puskas Arena in Budapest to put Jurgen Klopp’s men well in control ahead of the round of 16 second-leg tie at Anfield next month.

Salah opened the scoring after running onto a miscued back-pass from Marcel Sabitzer in the 53rd minute. Another defensive mistake, this time from Nordi Mukiele five minutes later, opened the door for Mane who scored his 18th goal in Europe’s premier competition.

Following three straight defeats in the Premier League, victory comes as a timely boost for the six-time Champions League winners who are at home to crosstown rivals Everton this weekend.
