Liverpool booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 3-1 success against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
Perhaps more was expected of Bayern in the second leg, but Liverpool deserve huge praise for winning in Germany to advance to the final eight of the competition.
Fabinho surprisingly started the clash on the bench, but was introduced in the 13th minute when Jordan Henderson pulled up with an ankle problem.
According to WhoScored, the Brazilian went on to make two tackles and won two aerial duels during his time on the field.
It would be fair to say that it took the midfielder a bit of time to settle at Liverpool following a move from Monaco in last summer’s transfer window.
Mo Salah has been brutally mocked for his recent diving antics in a new video by 442oons. Check it out below…
However, the 25-year-old has been a regular in recent weeks and the Merseyside outfit’s fans were delighted with his showing against the German champions.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Incredible performance again.
