In a dramatic win, Liverpool and Napoli advanced to the last 16 on Tuesday as they defeated their opponents in the final round of UEFA Champions League group stage matches.
The Blues hammered Belgian side Genk 4-0 at the Stadio San Paolo. Polish forward Arkadiusz Milik scored a hat-trick in the first half and Belgian forward Dries Mertens scored a Panenka penalty in the 75th minute. Two goals inside two second-half minutes from Keita and Salah, with the Egyptian finding the net with an exquisite finish from a tight angle, helped Liverpool finish top of Group E with 13 points.
Napoli had their biggest ever Champions League win while the debut of Genk’s 17-year-old Maarten Vandevoordt made him the youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history. In another Group E match, Liverpool defeated Salzburg 2-0 in Stadion Salzburg with goals from Guinean midfielder Naby Keita in the 57th minute and Egyptian star Mohamed Salah in the 58th minute.
