Hwang Hee-chan turns Virgil Van Dijk inside out before scoring for RB Salzburg vs Liverpool at the Anfield in the Champions League.
Liverpool have been a class apart in the Premier League. They are yet to drop a point after 7 games and look good for a maiden Premier league title. Their Champions League run however, started off on the wrong note losing 2-0 to Napoli.
Liverpool set out tonight to set the record straight and it seemed that they were out for a thrashing when they took a 3-0 lead with just 35 minutes on the clock. However, by the time the match had clocked an hour, RB Salzburg fought back to equalize 3-3.
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah would go on to score the winner in the 69th minute of the match. However, they will consider themselves lucky to have scraped all three points after fighting off a spirited effort from Salzburg.
Liverpool had not conceded a goal at Anfield in the Champions League in 5 matches before, yet Salzburg found the net 3 times with the first one being a work of art.

Virgil Van Dijk’s performance last season led many to claim that he was the best defender in the world at the moment. His contribution to Liverpool’s success won him the PFA and the UEFA player of the year awards. He was also nominated for the FIFA Best player award.
All that mattered very little to Hwang Hee-chan though as he made Van Dijk look like a fool, turning and twisting him inside out before smashing the ball into the net.
