Griezmann was shown off the pitch, while Salah’s phenomenal form continues as Liverpool snap a narrow victory against Atletico
Gameweek 3 of the UEFA Champions League did not disappoint, with the encounter between Liverpool and Atletico Madrid being one of the most exciting to watch.
The game was held at Wanda Metropolitano, and it was critical for Colchoneros to win in order to gain a foothold in the group.
On the other hand, Mohammed Salah scored another brace to help Jurgen Klopp’s team to a resounding victory.
After scoring a brace in the 52nd minute to draw Atletico Madrid level with Liverpool, German referee Daniel Siebert sent off Antione Griezmann.
Just before he was shown off the pitch, his two goals in the first half practically made him Colchoneros’ best-performing player.
Klopp’s side got off to a good start, with Mohammed Salah scoring the game’s first goal after only 8 minutes and Naby Keita adding a second in the 13th minute.
After a hard-fought game, Salah’s penalty goal in the 78th minute all but sealed the Premier League side’s triumph.
The Video Assistant Referee overturned a penalty awarded to Real Madrid for a supposed foul on Jose Gimenez, which would have given Diego Simeone’s side a chance to get back into the game.
