translated from Spanish: Liverpool turned it around and defeated Milan 3-2 at Anfield

With less epic than sixteen years ago in Istanbul, but with similar doses of madness, Liverpool came back from the match against Milan to start with a triumph in this Champions League (3-2). The Reds, who went from 1-0 to 1-2, following Tomori’s own goal and a missed penalty by Mohamed Slaha, in 180 crazy seconds before the break, caged all three points in the second half, when Salah and Henderson did justice at Anfield. with the push of an audience that returned to listen to the music of the ‘Champions’ at Anfield a year and a half later, since Atlético de Madrid eliminated them two editions ago. Liverpool, much more team than Milan, swept the Italians for half an hour. He handcuffed them showing an insulting superiority for what was once a classic of European football. Trent Alexander-Arnold made the first wound. A wall down the right wing with Salah culminating in a cross that bounced off Tomori and went over Maignan.Se was coming and Liverpool spotted the second when Bennacer grazed a shot from Robertson with his hand. The referee pointed to the penalty spot and Salah stamped himself. Too much power and little placement for the Egyptian, who shot too centered and met Maignan. Nor could Robertson on the plate to the rejection. He was escaped alive by Milan, who did practically nothing until the last three minutes of the first half. In just 180 seconds Liverpool spoiled their entire lead. First Rebic, who took advantage of a mistake in the mark of Joe Gomez, who threw the offside late, to beat Alisson low, and later again the Croatian, winning the back of Alexander-Arnold, and giving the death pass to Alexis Saelemaekers. The Belgian got Robertson’s shot on the goal line, but left the ball soft for Brahim to push.Not knowing how, Liverpool had gotten into a mess. The luck for them is that they were able to reflect on the break and go out to eat those of Pipo Inzaghi. The expected siege was as expected by the thousands of souls at Anfield. It could not be otherwise. Salah, Jota, Origi, Keita. Everyone tried unsuccessfully until the Belgian striker, starting in place of Mané, threw a filtered pass over the Italian defence line for Salah to stand alone against the goalkeeper and define acrobatically. Anfield was leaning towards Maignan’s goal, it was a matter of time before the third arrived and jota forced it, with a corner shot that led to the 3-2 play. Alexander-Arnold’s corner kick, Milan’s clearance on the first stick and on the front, a bounce soon, Henderson hooked it into the net. Although Milan tried in the last minutes, in which Maldini’s son Daniel had time to debut, Liverpool tied the points at home and already leads Group B, above Atletico Madrid and Porto.- Technical sheet: 3 – Liverpool: Alisson; Robertson, Gomez, Matip, Alexander-Arnold; Henderson (Milner, m.84), Fabinho, Keita (Thiago, m.71); Jota (Jones, m.71), Origi (Mané, m.63) and Salah (Oxlade-Chamberlain, m.84).2 – Milan: Maignan; Hernandez, Tomori, Kjaer, Calabria; Bennacer (Tonali, d.71), Kessie, Brahim; Leao (Giroud, m.62), Saelemaekers (Florenzi, m.62) and Rebic (Maldini, m.83).
