Bdtodays Desk: When Liverpool played with its flow then a great win is very common like 7-0 trashing over Maribor 7-0 in there champion league campaign’s first round. They got their first win in the first round campaign and it’s the biggest away win in Champions League history.
Brazilian striker Firminho netted twice as Mohamed Salah scored twice to follow up goals from when Philippe Coutinho as Liverpool took a 4-0 lead at halftime.
Firmino scored his first goal at the four minutes of the match and added a second goal before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain — his first for Liverpool — and Trent Alexander-Arnold completed the rout for Maribor’s heaviest loss in the competition.
“Our attitude was outstanding — we were spot on from the first second,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.
Liverpool has struggled to turn chances into goals in recent games, notably draws in the English Premier League against Burnley and Manchester United that have dropped Klopp’s team off the title pace.
“We had bad luck in the last three or four games,” Salah said. “Everyone was confident a good result was coming.”
It was the biggest margin of victory for an English club away from home in the European Cup or Champions League.
Two other teams have also won 7-0 in the Champions League: Marseille over MSK Zilina in 2010 and Shakhtar Donetsk over BATE Borisov in 2014.
