Every time there is a Champions League match, you have to put on your dress suit, sit back and enjoy. Even more if Liverpool plays and Luis Diaz is there. On the night of Lisbon, he shone with an assist and goal against Benfica.

Every game that passes, Luis Diaz is more comfortable on the pitch. Not only because he is a weapon in attack. But also, because he is vital to block the opponent’s exit. He helps in the marking, runs and when it is necessary to take away, he does it.

In the first half in Lisbon, he could have scored when the game was already 1-0 in favor of Liverpool. But the ball was too long for him and the local goalkeeper prevented him from scoring.

In the 34th minute, a bad start ended in a pass to Luis Díaz, who headed the ball to Mané to make it 2-0. The series seemed to be over, but there was more to come.

In any case, Liverpool knows it has to regulate physically. Because this weekend they will play Manchester City in what will be an early Premier League final.

For the second half, Liverpool continued with the same calm. They gave the ball control and tried to keep Benfica away. However, the Portuguese scored and it was a way to wake up the team. Klopp moved the bench, but Luis Diaz stayed on the field and made the key.

Before the curtain fell, Diaz scored the third after leaving the Benfica goalkeeper in the way. With this goal, the shutter came down and everyone was happy. The Colombian scored in a stadium where he had been resisted since his arrival. And it helped his team to get closer to the Champions League Quarterfinals.

Liverpool has a final ahead of them

The return leg at Anfield Road will be on April 13. But first Liverpool will have to face Manchester City. In what will be an early Premier League final.
