Liverpool just managed to conquer Besiktas in the first leg of the last-32 tie. Despite the length of time it took them, they did it.
There was only one goal scored in the match and it was scored very late on. With only five minutes of full time left to play, the crucial shot was taken. Let’s just say that Besiktas didn’t conceive the goal in the most fitting of fashion.
Sturridge made his European debut for Liverpool, however it wasn’t him that scored. It was the one and only Balotelli! He argued to take the penalty and he was successful! He scored the winning goal for the Reds to end their night with flames!
Liverpool have bagged a win and can now move on to the second leg with high hopes and a raised level of confidence. If they can’t win in the English league, who says they can’t take Europe?
