Champions League reigning champions Madrid produced a stunning comeback, beating Liverpool at Anfield 5-2 in the first leg.

The three-goal gap was battle that was too big for Jurgen Klopp’s side to win, and Benzema, a familiar face, put Reds out of their misery by scoring the winning goal in the second leg at Bernabeu.

The goalkeepers took the spotlights during the game, with Allison blocked Vinicius Jr at close range and saved Eduardo Camavinga’s deflected shot. Meanwhile, Thibaut Courtois at the other end was not to be shadowed by Allison.
