NABY KEITA scored a sensational volley as Liverpool raced into a two goal lead against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
As the ball was half cleared away by the Spanish champions, Keita rifled it back in with a venomous shot which flew past the despairing dive of Jan Oblak.

The Guinean’s 13th minute strike doubled the visitors’ lead after Mo Salah put them ahead early on.
But Keita’s goal was the one which caught the eye as Jurgen Klopp’s men sprinted out of the blocks in Europe.
Speaking about the strike, former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson told BBC Radio 5 Live: “Naby Keita’s just swung his right foot and hit across the ball. It’s a great strike.
“Jan Oblak had no chance. It’s a brilliant start by Liverpool and I’ve never seen Atletico make such a poor start, but it’s down to the quality of the opposition.
“Liverpool are outstanding. Atletico are all over the place. Very un-Simeone like.”
It was the perfect start to the game for Liverpool but they were quickly brought back down to earth before half time.
