Liverpool shocked Manchester City last weekend, when they found the net thrice at home, to beat City 3-0. It was the 1st leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter finals and they then went to the Etihad Stadium for the 2nd leg, where all they had to do was avoid losing by a deficit of 3 goals.

The 2nd leg was played yesterday, where City scored within 3 minutes and the comeback was on! However, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah scored for LFC in the 2nd half and ended the game 2-1. They won 5-1 on aggregate and qualified for the Champions League semi-finals, even though City had 20 shots compared to LFC's 5, and City even enjoyed a massive chunk of the possession - 69%.
