LIVERPOOL EASE INTO EUROPA LEAGUE QUARTER FINALS – Liverpool beat Sparta Prague 11-2 on aggregate

Liverpool eased into the Europa League quarter-finals after thrashing Sparta Prague 6-1 at Anfield to win the tie 11-2 on aggregate. Jurgen Klopp’s side were ruthless despite leading 5-1 after the first leg, scoring four goals in seven first-half minutes to put the last-16 tie to bed, before Sparta Prague pulled one back through Velko Birmancevic.

Bobby Clark, 19, netted his first senior goal for Liverpool right after Darwin Nunez’s seventh-minute opener. Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo then added two more in quick succession to make it 4-0 inside 15 minutes.

Dominik Szoboszlai’s deflected effort, three minutes into the second half, was quickly followed by Gakpo’s second as Liverpool punished a woeful Sparta Prague performance to claim their biggest aggregate win in Europe.
