Liverpool fans can’t wait to see Naby Keita in red after sensational assist

Just when Liverpool fans thought this week’s European football couldn’t get any better, Naby Keita, who will arrive at Anfield this summer, had Reds fans licking their lips in anticipation over a peach of an assist for RB Leipzig.

The Guinea international midfielder, who has agreed a £48million move ahead of next season, gave Kopites a tantalising taster of the kind of magic they can look forward to later this year with a spectacular run and pass that opened up the Olympique Marseille defence at the Stade Velodrome.

Picking up the ball in the left wing position just inside the opposition half, the 23-year-old drove forward diagonally into the French side’s area, showing both his pace and power by shrugging off two challenges before then executing an audacious drag back to feed Paris-born Jean-Kevin Augustin for Leipzig’s second goal in the 55th minute.This particular highlight though left Reds fans excited though at the prospect of yet another top-quality addition to their squad for what they hope will be a serious assault on the Premier League title in 2018/19.Elsewhere, Arsenal survived a scare in Moscow, going down 2-0 on the night to see their aggregate lead cut to 4-3 before strikes from Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey saw them fight back to draw 2-2 and go through 6-3.Leipzig’s ‘sister club’ Red Bull Salzburg from Austria shocked Lazio with a 4-1 win that saw them progress 6-5 on aggregate while Atletico Madrid went through 2-1 overall despite a 1-0 defeat to Sporting in Lisbon.
