DREAM TEAM POINTS: Liverpool 4 Hoffenheim 2

Liverpool has reached the group stage of the Champions League with emphatic win

Champions League is back, Liverpool fans.

The Reds expertly dispatched Hoffenheim on a night when their attacking finesse and defensive frailties were on display in equal measure.

Jurgen Klopp’s side stormed into a three-goal lead after just 21 minutes, before Mark Uth pulled one back for the German side just before the break.

Liverpool’s problems at the back continued with the German side scoring a simple header deep into the second half, but not before Roberto Firmino made things comfortable with an easy-as-you like fourth.
