Today the first Champions League game was played at Anfield since 2009. However, the time frame did not appear to phase the home team.
Liverpool defeated Ludogorets Razgrad in their first match of the group stages. It was a long wait (a very long wait) before the game produced any result. But that just meant more action and entertainment in the finale!
Balotelli put in the first goal for Liverpool in the 82nd minute of the match. Ordinarily, a goal this late would have seen them through. Well, this match was none of the sort. Abalo Paulos put the visitors level with a last minute goal! Despite it being crunch time, Gerrard was able to take a penalty that joined Liverpool with Real Madrid at the top of group B. All in the 90th minute! Talk about jam-packed action!
It all began with a gentle stroke from the waves. But as time ticked, the waves became increasing ferocious! Liverpool are not waiting for the cup to come to them; they’re going to it! Will they have enough fire to roast their opponents?
