Klopp insists Liverpool still have work to do

Liverpool Transfer News LIVE updates

The Liverpool-born full-back, deputising for the injured Nathaniel Clyne, opened the scoring in the 35th minute by curling home a free-kick from outside the box on his European debut. Both teams have very solid sides and should give a contested fight to try and reach that coveted spot in the Champions League group stages.

Liverpool's lead was eventually doubled in the 74th minute through substitute James Milner, whose cross deflected into the back of the net. "Whatever I say will not help the situation but as players, we are fully focused on the game", Henderson told an eve-of-game press conference.

Trent Alexander-Arnold's first Liverpool goal set Jurgen Klopp's men on their way to a 2-1 Champions League play-off round win away at Hoffenheim in Tuesday's first leg.

"I got egged on to take the free kick".

"It was a little risky in the first half, but as always when we play football, we found spaces in between and created wonderful chances", said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool will take a one-goal advantage back to Anfield next week as they already have put one foot in the Champions League group stage after two years apart from the most elite European competition.

The Reds coach insisted that it would be a tricky encounter for his side, against a Hoffenheim outfit led by the impressive Julian Nagelsmann, who became the Bundesliga's youngest-ever coach a year ago at the age of 28.

An aimless ball forward was headed into the air by Young Boys center back Kasim Nuhu, who compounded that clumsy touch by heading the ball for a second time, this time over goalkeeper David von Ballmoos and over the line.

Hoffenheim is now in tremendous form, undefeated in its last five games in all competitions, gearing up for this playoff game and the start of the Bundesliga season this weekend.

Azeri champions Qarabag beat FC Copenhagen 1-0 and APOEL Nicosia were 2-0 winners at home to Slavia Prague in the evening's other ties.
