At the start of the game, Portugal's Diogo Jota put the team ahead with a header from a mistake by the visitors' goalkeeper. At the end of the first half the visitors scored the equaliser also with a header by Irish defender O'Shea.

But in the second half the Reds turned their fortunes around and showed they are title contenders by first taking the lead with a goal from Colombian striker Luis Diaz and then late in the game Uruguay's Darwin Nunez appeared to silence their critics with a world class headed goal.
