The scoring commenced in the first half with Luis Diaz netting his fourth goal of the month, followed swiftly by Cody Gakpo extending the lead. In the second half, Mohamed Salah added to the tally with his 199th goal for Liverpool from the penalty spot, and Gakpo sealed the victory with a fourth goal in stoppage time.

LASK initially approached the game with a fearless attitude, attempting to take the fight to their more renowned opponents. However, their lack of quality in the final ball hindered their efforts. Diaz capitalized on a well-placed cross from Joe Gomez to head Liverpool into the lead. Gakpo then tapped in a cross from Salah to double the advantage.
