Mane dribbled toward the heart of the 18 and played a 1-2 with Roberto Firmino before spinning a shot past Salzburg keeper

Mane limited his goal celebration to a post-finish prayer, as he revealed earlier this week that he regularly supports Salzburg.

Andy Robertson knifed a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross home just over 15 minutes later to make it 2-0.
