BERGAMO, ITALY (AFP) – Diogo Jota scored a hat-trick as Liverpool demolished Atalanta 5-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday (Nov 3) to secure a third win in as many matches in Group D.

Portugal forward Jota struck twice in the first half in Bergamo before Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane added goals early in the second period. Jota completed his treble on 54 minutes.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have a maximum nine points and are five clear of both Atalanta and Ajax, who won 2-1 at Danish champions Midtjylland.
