Mohamed Salah set Liverpool history by scoring in his ninth consecutive match, leading the Reds to a 3-2 victory over Atletico Madrid, who had two-goal Antoine Griezmann sent off and a late penalty contentiously overruled.

In Tuesday’s tense Champions League clash at Wanda Metropolitano, in-form striker Salah opened the scoring after only eight minutes, before Naby Keita volleyed in a second five minutes later as the visitors grabbed total control.

Atletico had gone two goals behind in a Champions League encounter for the first time, but they rallied before halftime thanks to Griezmann’s double.

Griezmann was sent off early in the second half for a high boot on Roberto Firmino, and Liverpool capitalized on the man advantage when Salah scored from the penalty spot.
