The Belgium striker beat keeper Cedric Carrasso from 16 yards with a sublime shot on the turn after controlling Nathaniel Clyne’s cross.

With one round of group games remaining, Liverpool, whose final match is against second-placed FC Sion in Switzerland on 10 December, are guaranteed a top-two finish.

Bordeaux, bottom of the group and without a win, cannot progress.
