Atletico Madrid ‘silence’ Liverpool with early goal

Atletico Madrid went ahead with an early goal at the fourth minute against Liverpool all thanks to Saul Niguez who put the home-side in front.

The defending champion of Champion League struggled to stage a comeback for a better part of the match but all efforts were abortive as the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 clash ended one goal to nil in favor of Madrid.

Salah, however, had his goal for Liverpool ruled out because Firmino was offside. It was Oblak who made a huge mistake, sending his clearance straight to Salah.
