Liverpool went into their match against Hoffenheim, knowing that a draw would be enough to see them qualify for the Champions League group stages. However, in the end, it turned out to be a one-sided display of sheer attacking brilliance from Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Central to their attacking display was Emre Can, who leapt forward at every opportunity to join the likes of Mane, Firmino and Salah. His efforts were rewarded, as Liverpool ran into a 3-0 lead with the German scoring twice.
Besides the goals, Emre Can also left the Kop in awe with this brilliant piece of skill during a moment in the game. With his back towards the approaching defender, the Bayern export showed phenomenal footwork to change direction and continue Liverpool’s counter.
