Firmino in the double
Word of Liverpool’s impending financial boost comes, of course, with Jurgen Klopp’s forces back to take another step towards European glory, and with it an unprecedented quadruple, on Wednesday night.
After welcoming Portuguese heavyweights Benfica to Merseyside with a two-goal advantage with a 3-1 win in Lisbon last week, the Reds advanced, as expected, this time thanks to an exciting six-goal game.
Despite hits by Roman Yarmicuk and Darwin Nunez giving Benfica a glimmer of hope of late, a Roberto Firmino brace adding an early header to Ibrahima Konate ensured Liverpool appeared on the right side 6-4 on aggregate.
Benfica fans, look away now… 🤦♂️
