Liverpool beat Porto 2-0 in the first leg of Champions League quarterfinals at Anfield Road Stadium.
Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino scored early goals to give Merseyside club a comfortable advantage over the opponents ahead of the second leg in Portugal.
Mohamed Salah, who finally ended his goal drought in the latest EPL match against Southampton, has been involved in controversial episode, when he made a challenge against Porto midfielder Danilo in the second half.
Portuguese club’s president Pinto da Costa says Danilo was lucky, as he could have had his leg broken after Salah’s challenge.

Da Costa thinks Salah should be given red card, because he didn’t try to take the ball. Also, Porto president thinks there was not equal treatment from the referee, Mateu Lahoz, who showed yellow cards to Porto players for similar challenges, while Salah didn’t face any punishment.
