Europa League: Ibe gives fine goal to Liverpool


Jordan Ibe scored a fine goal to hand Liverpool a crucial 1-0 victory over Rubin Kazan in the Europa League on Thursday, as Celtic flopped once again to leave their hopes in tatters.

After three successive draws, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp was hoping his team could carry over the momentum from Saturday’s Premier League 3-1 win over Chelsea when they travelled to Russia.

And they did not disappoint, dominating for much of the match and Ibe’s 53rd-minute strike ensuring a first away win in Europe in three years against a side that has in the past claimed the scalps of Chelsea, Tottenham and Wigan.

Group B leaders Sion had Veroljub Salatic to thank for a 94th minute goal that secured a 1-1 draw with Bordeaux, who are next up for Liverpool, on six points two behind Sion and three ahead of the French team.
