Roberto Firmino came off the bench to score his 16th goal of the season in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Porto on Wednesday night.
The victory saw Liverpool book their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League courtesy of a 6-1 aggregate success over the Portuguese club, who struggled over the two legs.
Firmino was somewhat surprisingly left out of the starting XI, but was introduced at the interval and managed to get his name on the scoresheet.
The 31-cap Brazil international has now scored four times in 10 Champions League matches during the 2018-19 campaign.
And the Liverpool fans will be hoping that the attacker can put on a strong performance against Spanish champions Barcelona in the semi-finals of the competition.

After being nominated for the Champions League Player of the Week award, a number of the Merseyside club’s supporters took to social media to hail the 27-year-old.
