Liverpool lead at the halfway stage of their Champions League play-off with Hoffenheim after claiming a 2-1 victory in the first leg in Germany.

A stunning free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold in the first half put Jürgen Klopp's men in front at Rhein-Neckar-Arena, and the advantage was later doubled via James Milner's deflected effort.

Mark Uth grabbed a goal back for the Bundesliga side with three minutes left on the clock but the Reds have taken control of the tie.
