Hoffenheim 0-1 Liverpool

Liverpool Transfer News LIVE updates

Alexander-Arnold whipped his shot over a seven-man wall from outside the area to open the scoring in a 2-1 victory that left Liverpool poised to reach the group stage of the competition for only the second time in eight years.

Lineker wrote: "Trent Alexander-Arnold scores a freekick for Liverpool that is as spectacular as his name".

In the 10th minute of their crucial first leg Champions League playoff against Hoffenheim, Liverpool conceded a penalty after the referee adjudged Dejan Lovren to have tripped Serge Gnabry.

"I know now people will say: 'Yes, but who wants to play in the Europa League?' Manchester United didn't want to play it previous year but they won it and now they are in the Champions League".

"I feel we played a really good match, especially in the first half and had the better, clearer chances", he said. "I am looking forward to a European night at Anfield".

"It's a dream to make your European debut for your boyhood club and to make it with a goal as well was very special for me", he told BT Sport.

The second leg will take place next week Wednesday at Anfield.

The 18-year-old had a superb game, and capped off his display with an excellent goal from a free kick to help the Merseysiders put one foot into the group stage. "Only the person who does not know about Hoffenheim can be surprised by this".

In the night's other Champions League play-off matches, Young Boys dominated the second half against CSKA yet the Swiss ended up losing after an nearly comical own goal.

Liverpool were forced to release a statement last week to reassure fans that their prized asset would not be sold, but Coutinho responded by handing in a written transfer request, which was flatly rejected by the club.

Elsewhere Copenhagen head to Azerbaijan to play Qarabag, Sporting Lisbon host Steaua Bucharest, Swiss side Young Boys take on CSKA Moscow and Slavia Prague head to Nicosia, Cyprus to play APOEL.
