Roberto Firmino became the fourth Liverpool player to score 20 goals in the Champions League when he netted a brace against Benfica in the Champions League quarter-final second leg clash on Wednesday night. 

The Brazilian joins current teammates Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane, as well as club legend Steven Gerrard in the special group.

Firmino first tapped in a low Diogo Jota cross before volleying a Konstantinos Tsimikas free-kick to set the Reds on the path to the semi-finals.

Liverpool though had a late scare as the visitors scored twice to level 3-3 on the night, but Jurgen Klopp’s side held on to sail through 6-4 on aggregate.

Speaking after the match, an elated Jurgen Klopp could not hide his joy.

“And the day I’m not over the moon about getting to a Champions League semi-final, then something is really wrong. Maybe then it would be the right time to just quit!”

Liverpool will now shift their attention to this weekend’s FA Cup clash against Manchester City.
