Liverpool play for a Premier League title.
Aston Villa, they have nothing but the honor to play for in the last league rounds.
Luiz scored 1-0
Despite that, it was the home team from Birmingham who took the lead, already in the third minute.
When two Liverpool players collapsed in a duel in the penalty area, Douglas Luiz was able to take care of the return after his own nod, and put 1-0 to Aston Villa.
But the joy was short-lived.
Only two and a half minutes later, after a tangled situation in the penalty area, Joel Matip was able to equalize.
Mané nodded in the winning goal
After that, Liverpool dominated most of the first half, without scoring any further goals.
But 20 minutes into the second half, the goal finally came, allowing Liverpool fans to continue dreaming of a Premier League title.
Luis Diaz unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide.
Liverpool have two games left
It turned out to be the last goal of the match.
Aston Villa tried to push for an equalizer in the final stages of the match, but were never really close.
Thus, Liverpool is now up to the same points as league leader Manchester City, who, however, has one match less played.
City have three games left to play.
