Like on the way. Ibrahima Konate scored again for Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Benfica on Wednesday evening. The Reds’ central defender scored in the 21st minute with a corner header.

Last week, in Lisbon, the 22-year-old Frenchman turned to something similar. It was then the first goal of his career with the English club, joining RB Leipzig last summer.

Equalizer rejected in progress

This goal from Konate allowed Liverpool to lead 1–0 in this second leg and take a 4–1 lead throughout the two meetings. So does the Portuguese’s slim hopes of qualification a little more. Especially since a fine goal from Darwin Nez, with a stung ball, was denied to him in a stride for the offside position (23rd). But the Portuguese pressure was rewarded by Goncalo Ramos (32nd), making the aggregate 4-2. Enough to shake the Reds?
