Liverpool booked a place in the Champions League group stage as they beat Hoffenheim 4-2 at Anfield on Wednesday evening to progress 6-3 on aggregate in the play-off tie.

The Reds raced into a three-goal lead in the first half thanks to a brace from Emre Can and a strike from Mohamed Salah to cap an outstanding team move.

Mark Uth pulled one back for the German club before the break, but Roberto Firmino added a fourth for Liverpool, rendering Sandro Wagner's header a late consolation.
