Racing Genk vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report - October 23, 2019 - ESPN
Liverpool rode an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain brace to a 4-1 win over Racing Genk on Wednesday to stay second in Champions League Group E.
Oxlade-Chamberlain made the most of his chance after a rare inclusion in Liverpool's starting XI, firing in a low-line drive from a Fabinho assist to put the visitors ahead in just the second minute.

Genk looked to have equalised later in the first half from a powerful Mbwana Samatta header over James Milner, but the goal was waved off after video review for offside in the buildup to the goal.
Liverpool doubled their lead shortly after half-time with Oxlade-Chamberlain adding his second goal of the evening from a cheeky first-time outside of the boot shot that curled up and over Genk goalkeeper Gaetan Coucke.
The three points were put to rest in the 77th minute when Mohamed Salah set up Sadio Mane to deftly chip Coucke for Liverpool's third goal of the night and the Egyptian added his team's fourth with a tricky little move and finish before Genk scored a meaningless late goal.
Jurgen Klopp's Premier League leaders remained in second place in their group after Napoli beat FC Salzburg.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored twice, including a stunning outside-of-the-boot finish, as Champions League holders Liverpool hammered Genk in Belgium. The Reds' 100% winning start to the Premier League ended with a draw at Manchester United on Sunday,
