Liverpool dispatches Hoffenheim, back in Champions League

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Liverpool sealed its return to the Champions League group stage after a two-season absence by beating Hoffenheim 4-2 on Wednesday, producing a devastating attacking display without star playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Emre Can scored goals either side of Mo Salah's tap-in as the five-time European champions surged 3-0 ahead after just 21 minutes at Anfield, before Roberto Firmino added a fourth in the second half against his old club.

Liverpool advanced 6-3 on aggregate and will be placed in the pot of third seeds in Thursday's draw, as England's fifth representative in Europe's elite club competition.
