Liverpool Come Back To Champions League With A Bang

Posted on September 17, 2014 at 10:06 am

Yesterday saw the return of European giants Liverpool back in the Champions League, facing Hungarian Champions Ludogrets in the first round of group matches of the 2014/2015 Champions League.

Predicted to be a one-sided match, it was anything but, with Ludogrets showing a threat from counter-attacks and Liverpool seeming wasteful with possession, but coming away with a 2-1 victory. Mario Balotelli, the £16 million signing scored in the last 10 minutes to make it seem as if a 1-0 victory would be enough, but unsurprisingly Liverpool had a defensive lapse in the 91st minute and conceded. Luckily for them, Ludogrets had a defensive lapse in the 92nd minute and gave away a penalty, which Steven Gerrard slotted away to assure the victory.

As seen many times before, Liverpool don’t like doing things the easy way and it looks like nothing will be changing anytime soon.
