Liverpool produced a shock when they surrendered a three-goal lead in the second half to draw 3-3 at Sevilla and miss a chance to advance in the Champions League on Tuesday.

A Sadio Mane goal in between Roberto Firmino’s brace saw a rampant Liverpool storm to a commanding 3-0 lead at half-time.

However, second-half goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Guido Pizarro ensured a crushing result for the Premier League club, who would have qualified for the knockout stage with a win.

Despite trailing 3-0, Sevilla showed fight coming out of the break and had their persistence rewarded in the 51st minute when Ben Yedder headed past Loris Karius from an Ever Banega free kick.

Sevilla then earned a penalty on the hour mark after Alberto Moreno kicked Ben Yedder after a poor first touch from a back-pass. Ben Yedder’s successful try from the spot was retaken due to encroachment, but he sent Karius the wrong way with his second attempt to cut Liverpool’s advantage to just one goal.

And three minutes into stoppage time Liverpool again failed to defend a set piece as Pizarro bundled home from close range following a corner to send the home fans into hysterics.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester City won their matches respectively and have already qualified for the round of 16.

While Tottenham came from behind to beat Dortmund in Germany with goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, Manchester City needed an 88 minute strike to beat visiting Feyenoord 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
