Naby Keita scored a magnificent volley to put Liverpool 2-0 up against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
The Guinea international slammed the ball past Jan Oblak, regarded by many as the world’s best goalkeeper, from the edge of the box.
Keita caught the ball perfectly with the outside of his right boot and watched as the net rippled moments later.
Liverpool had taken the lead minutes earlier through the in-form Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian forward cut inside from the right flank, beating three Atletico players, before his shot took a deflection and nestled into the bottom corner.
However, Salah was outshone by Keita, whose strike will be remembered for a long time to come.

Griezmann puts Atletico back on level terms
Atletico made it 2-1 in the 20th minute, however, through Antoine Griezmann.
The French forward then struck again 15 minutes later to fire Diego Simeone’s side right back into the contest.
What a dramatic first half between two brilliant teams.
