Liverpool 2-0 RB Leipzig: Player ratings as Reds reach Champions League quarter finals

Liverpool booked their place in the quarter finals of the Champions League with a 2-0 win over RB Leipzig at the Puskas Arena to give them a 4-0 aggregate victory over the Bundesliga side.

The Reds squandered a multitude of first half chances with Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Thiago Alcantara all seeing opportunities go begging, but finally saw their dominance rewarded with two goals in the space of four second half minutes.

Salah applied the finishing touches to a slick Liverpool move 20 minutes from time, and moments later Sadio Mane doubled the Reds’ advantage as he turned home substitute Divock Origi’s cross.

Let’s get into some player ratings.
