Liverpool vs. Racing Genk - Football Match Report

Liverpool vs. Racing Genk - Football Match Report”

Liverpool moved to the top of Group E following a 2-1 victory over Genk in the UEFA Champions League at the Anfield Stadium on Tuesday. It's a boring saying but it's true! "But the plan was to win the game and we did that, so job done". "I think we have to look game by game and then at the end we will see how far we come".

Napoli visit Anfield on November 27 with Liverpool hoping to guarantee qualification for the last 16 before their final group game at Salzburg on December 10.

The biggest talking point a couple of hours before kick-off was Liverpool's decision to play their Carabao Cup quarter-final at Aston Villa and Club World Cup semi-final in Qatar within 24 hours of each other, fielding two separate teams.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored four goals in his last four games for Liverpool, as many as in his previous 45 appearances for the Reds across all competitions.

Genk forward Mbwana Samatta feels his first-half equaliser is not important after they suffered a 2-1 loss to Liverpool in Tuesday's Champions League game.

The lively Salah found Oxlade-Chamberlain with some neat footwork and the 26-year-old turned on a sixpence before lashing a left-footed shot into the bottom corner at the Kop end.

Liverpool were comfortably in control from then on but keeper Alisson Becker had to be alert nine minutes from the end to push out a unsafe shot from the impressive Heynen.

Genk wasted a glorious chance to level things up in the 82nd minute, when he went on a one-on-one situation with the Alisson, who saved to snatch the full points for his side.

Jurgen Klopp and his opposite number Felice Mazzu came out for the second half unchanged from the first spell.
