Bournemouth 1-2 Liverpool: A thunderous strike from second-half substitute Darwin Nunez secures a quarterfinal place for the visitors.
The prolific Uruguayan forward, who had only been on the field for 10 minutes, received a pass from fellow substitute Trent Alexander-Arnold and unleashed a powerful strike into the top right corner of the net.
Watch highlight: Bournemouth 1-2 Liverpool
Cody Gakpo had given Jurgen Klopp’s significantly altered team a first-half lead, but Justin Kluivert’s first goal for Bournemouth evened the score under challenging conditions brought on by Storm Ciaran.
However, the tie remained level for just six minutes as Nunez, who had scored three goals in as many games, emphatically ensured Liverpool’s place in the quarterfinals.
This outcome guaranteed that the exciting fourth-round match wouldn’t be decided by the uncertainty of a penalty shootout.
