The striker advanced and shot hard, but the goalkeeper killed the ball again. Nkunku decided to shoot two minutes later from a long distance. However, the ball went far over Alison's door.

Manet brought Jota alone against goalkeeper Gulachi in the 54th minute. This was the first serious danger in the second half for either team. Jota took the ball and shot, but again the guard killed. Salah came running, but his header went over the door, which was completely empty.

In the 71st minute Liverpool scored a goal that calmed Jurgen Klopp and his team. Sadio Mane brought out Diogo Jota, who was not greedy and passed with one touch to Mohamed Salah. The star took the ball, lied that he would shoot and thus eliminated the opponent. The Egyptian entered the penalty area and scored in cold blood for 1: 0.

In the 74th minute, the "reds" scored a second goal. Wild Origi, who came in minutes ago, received the ball on the right flank. He centered half high and on the far post Sadio Mane was left alone and had no problem realizing for 2: 0.

A good attack on the left flank could have ended with a third goal for Liverpool. James Milter passed to Divok Origi in the 83rd minute. He controlled the ball, faked a defender of the Germans and shot, but in the out.
