Real Madrid faced off against Liverpool at Anfield earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a positive result on the road. Los Blancos made a poor start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the fourth minute when Darwin Nunez found the back of the net. Mohamed Salah doubled the home side’s advantage after capitalising on Thibaut Courtois’ poor mistake in the 14th minute. However, Vinicius Junior scored two rapid goals as the Madrid giants went into the half-time interval with a 2-2 scoreline.

Eder Militao scored with a solid header in the 47th minute before Karim Benzema bagged a brace soon after. Real Madrid ended up cruising to a brilliant 5-2 win on their travels.
