In Group B Champions League football news, Liverpool beat AC Milan 1-2 on Tuesday night away at the San Siro.

So, yet another Champions League victory for Liverpool sent the Serie A side out of the European competition for this season.

Fikayo Tomori opened the scoring for the home side exactly before the 30-minute mark when he side-footed a shot home.

This was after Liverpool keeper Alisson palmed a corner kick right into his path in front of the net.

However, Liverpool struck back soon after when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s saved shot spilled into the path of Mohamed Salah (football prediction). And Salah finished with aplomb to level the score 1-1 ahead of the break.

Then, shortly after the restart, Divock Origi put Liverpool ahead. A poor giveaway from the Milan defence gave the ball away to Sadio Mane, whose shot was futile. But the ball ended up in the direction of the Belgian, who powered a header past Mike Maignan to score.

San Siro erupted after Takumi Minamino missed a clearance from a corner in the 29th minute. This move, however, led to Alisson parrying the ball into Tomori’s path for a simple finish.

But just as the home crowd started to believe in an improbable final-day climb into the top two, Salah struck.

Goalkeeper Mike Maignan deflected an Oxlade-Chamberlain shot, but Salah, the Egyptian reacted quickly to fire home.

Tomori then suffered a reversal of fates from his earlier goalscoring heroics when he gave the ball away to Mane.

With all this happening after the break, Maignan blocked the winger’s shot but couldn’t stop Origi’s header in the rebound.

The Rossoneri played with more purpose in the second half but could not find an equaliser.

Franck Kessie squandering their best chance when Alisson denied his attempt to score in a one-on-one.
