Ryan Gravenberch scored his first goal for Liverpool as they beat Union Saint-Gilloise in the Europa League.
The summer signing struck just before half-time, slotting in after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s shot was parried by Anthony Moris.
That goal provided the spark in an otherwise dull first half of few chances at Anfield.
Darwin Nunez missed a big opportunity when he prodded wide from Mohamed Salah’s cross, while Gustaf Nilsson headed over from close range for the visitors.
Gravenberch was denied a second just after the hour when his dipping effort was pushed behind by Moris.
The Belgian side applied late pressure but Liverpool wrapped up the win when Diogo Jota slotted in after a quick break.
This was not a memorable performance by Liverpool but, after the video assistant referee controversy following Saturday’s English Premier League defeat at Tottenham, it was a routine and incident-free win.
Liverpool top Group E with six points from two games.
