Naby Keita stunner keeps Leipzig hopes alive

Future Liverpool player Naby Keita scored a stunning goal on Tuesday night as Bundesliga side RB Leipzig defeated Monaco 4-1 in their Champions League clash.

Keita’s goal was the icing on the cake for Leipzig as last year’s Bundesliga runners up ran out comfortable winners in Monaco to keep their hopes of making the knockout stages alive.

The Guinea international, who will join the Anfield club in the summer, turned on the edge of the box before stroking home the ball in an exquisite display of skill.

An own goal and two strikes from Timo Werner had given Die Roten a three-goal lead before Radamel Falcao pulled one back for last season’s semi-finalists, only for Keita to net on the stroke of half-time with the last goal of the game to restore the German side’s advantage.

The win leaves Leipzig in third place in Group G, level on points with second-placed Porto on seven points with just one game remaining. Leipzig will face group leaders Besitkas at home, but will need to better the result of Porto, who host Monaco.
