SPORTS: Champions League: Liverpool set new EPL club record in 5-0 hammering of Porto

Liverpool on Wednesday night set a new UEFA Champions’ League (UCL) record for an English side.

The Reds thrashed Porto 5-0 at the Estadio do Dragao in the UCL last-16 first leg tie.

Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick, while Roberto Firmino and club top scorer Mohamed Salah were also on the scoresheet.

The emphatic result is the biggest away win in the knockout stages for an English side in the history of the tournament.

Manchester City were the previous holders of the record after beating Basel 4-0 at Switzerland in the first leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday night.

The Premier League leaders’ reign as the English away kings, however, was short-lived as Liverpool hammered Porto just 24 hours later to become the new holders of the record.

Liverpool return to Anfield for the second leg with a formidable advantage and Porto supporters will now be praying for a miraculous comeback.
