Sadio Mane scored twice to send Juergen Klopp’s Liverpool into the Champions League quarterfinals with a 3-1 win at Bayern Munich in the second leg of the last-16 on Wednesday.

Mane opened the scoring with a delicate finish in the 26th minute and added Liverpool’s third in the 84th by heading in Mohamed Salah’s cross as Bayern desperately sought a way back into the game.

Serge Gnabry had forced an own goal from Joel Matip to equalize in the 39th, but Liverpool went ahead again through a corner when Virgil Van Dijk met James Milner’s cross with a thumping header in the 69th.
