Otherwise everything with the old person and the duo were Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres should it in the offensive again once arrange.

With the Franszosen there was no surprise, because coach Rudi Garcia trusted accurately those eleven players of the first leg. As only genuine point acted Pierre Alain woman, who on the wings by Ludovic Obraniak and Eden Hazard one supported. In the defense defense boss directed aristocracy Rami.

PLAY PROCESS 1ST HALF

The play began as well as it to expect was, because the FC Liverpool wanted to obtain fast reconciliation. Already in the third minute Ryan Babel, after preliminary work of Lucas, had a good chance, but its attempt went over the box. „The Reds “produced powerfully pressure and the guests had problems into the play to come and could free itself also only with difficulty. In the respected minute calculated Rami Lucas in the Strafraum put. The due eleven-meter sink Gerrard ice cold (9.).

In the connection it tried Florent Balmont from the distance, but its shot was not a danger. Both teams wanted to after-put, but both crews did not become compellingly dangerous. Mostly always a defense play had a leg between them. Many balls were lost in punishing space proximity and the play river was interrupted in this period always again by Fouls. In the 73. The guests had minute after a standard of Obraniak a good chance. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang spitzelte the ball only completely scarcely over the transverse slat and reconciliation have obtained could, if not even must.
