Mohamed Salah shines as Liverpool routs Roma

Mohamed Salah put in a magical performance against former club Roma, as two goals and two assists helped Liverpool to a commanding first-leg Champions League semifinal lead.

The Egyptian led the rout from the first whistle as Liverpool found themselves 5-0 up with just 10 minutes of the game left to play.

However, a late Roma rally as Liverpool’s defense went to sleep saw Edin Dzeko and Diego Perotti score two late goals to give the Italians a glimmer of hope going into the second leg.

The two sides will meet again at the Stadio Olimpico in eight days’ time.
