Here’s how the UK’s national papers viewed Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Napoli on Tuesday to seal progression to the last 16 of the Champions League.
The Reds went in to the final match-day knowing if they were to qualify, they would have to either win by a goal, or by two clear goals if the visitors scored.
It was a rocking atmosphere at Anfield and despite the nerves late on – the Reds held on to book their place in the round of 16.
The Mirror headline their back-page with “Mo Place Like Home” as David Maddock writes, “Mo Salah produced another moment of magic to fire Liverpool into the knock-out stages of the Champions League.”
The Daily Express write, “Salah sees Reds home” as Gary Chappell cites Liverpool’s record of being unbeaten in their last 19 home games in Europe.
The Mail emphatically state “mission accomplished” whilst Dominic King writes, “Liverpool and Tottenham made it a night of Champions League glory for English teams.”
The Telegraph simply feature Salah, labelling him “the special one” and writing, “Brilliant Salah strikes in Anfield thriller to take Liverpool into Champions League knockout stage.”
Meanwhile, i Sport contrast Liverpool and Tottenham’s way of progression, citing the Reds as “sailing through” whilst Mauricio Pochettino’s side “sneak in”.
Although some Liverpool supporters may certainly disagree, feeling like their side also snuck in after Alisson’s excellent late save!
Meanwhile, with the political climate as it is in the United Kingdom currently, The Star and the Times both go with Brexit-related headlines to describe the two sides’ achievement.
The former call them “EU Beauts” whilst the Times label both sides as “the great remainers,” writing that they both “hang on to make sure that four English clubs are staying in Europe.”
