Liverpool thrashes Maribor 7-0 in Champions League

MARIBOR, Slovenia (AP) Liverpool rediscovered its potency by thrashing Maribor 7-0, matching the biggest away win in Champions League history and emphatically securing its first win in Group E on Tuesday.

Mohamed Salah scored twice to follow up goals from Roberto Firmino, in the fourth minute, and Philippe Coutinho as Liverpool took a 4-0 lead at halftime.

Firmino added a second goal before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - his first for Liverpool - and Trent Alexander-Arnold completed the rout for Maribor's heaviest loss in the competition.
