Liverpool back in Champions League



LIVERPOOL, Aug 24 (AP): Juergen Klopp had just seen his Liverpool team slice open Hoffenheim to score a third goal in the opening 21 minutes when he turned to the celebrating Anfield crowd and roared: "That's football!"

Liverpool returned to the Champions League group stage in some style on Wednesday.

With the attacking trio of Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane combining brilliantly, Liverpool beat Hoffenheim 4-2 with a devastating attacking display to seal a return to Europe's elite club competition after a two-year absence.

The Reds advanced 6-3 on aggregate in the qualifying playoff and will be placed in the pot of third seeds in Thursday's draw.

"The start of the game was like a thunderstorm," Klopp said. "We were so dangerous, so clinical. We could have scored even more."

Hoffenheim is playing in European competition for the first time in its history this season and was swept away on another atmospheric night at Anfield.
