March 10, 2021
Goals: Salah 70′, Mane 74′
Salah made amends with 20 minutes remaining, however, finishing well after a slick move to finally give the Reds a deserved lead.
Mane doubled Liverpool’s advantage soon after to put the tie to bed, with the Merseysiders seeing out the game and making it into the quarters.
There was much delight after the final whistle…
We've won a game! We've scored goals! We've had loads of shots on target! We've kept a clean sheet!
What is this devilry?! Well in, Reds!!!

Star performers Fabinho and Phillips received the most praise…
Fabinho in midfield is life

Fab in MF from now on please. Monster #LFC

Tonight showed why Fabinho has been such a monumental miss in midfield this season. Reads the game so well, breaks up play & provides so much control to this side. Wijnaldum & Thiago far more progressive as a result.

Fabinho the destroyer.

Reds fans joked about playing in Budapest all the time…
Can we schedule all our games in Budapest ?

Liverpool have scored more home goals in Budapest than in Liverpool in 2021.

“Can we play at this ground every home game! ” – Bennie Rednose Kopite on Facebook.
Might be good if the club bought no new players in the summer and spent the money on airlifting Anfield to Budapest tbqhwy.

Some were giddy and dreaming of Champions League glory in May…
15th in the League and number 7?

All I want for the quarter finals is for Bayern to draw City and for us to draw not-Bayern or not-City.
