Anfield—England, United Kingdom.

Europa League, Round of 32 Second Leg

Liverpool 3-1 Zenit St. Petersburg (3-3 on aggregate)

So close!

The Reds made it difficult for themselves as they always do, but an incredible resurgence gave us one hell of a 90 minutes to enjoy.

Liverpool looked up for it from the start and threatened from the first whistle, but Hulk's early goal courtesy of a horrific Jamie Carragher mistake was a real spanner in the works.

A Luis Suarez free kick restored hope, then a Joe Allen second before halftime produced real faith from the home crowd. A sublime free kick from the Uruguayan took them to within one goal of progressing, but Luciano Spalletti's side held out.

The Russians progress on away goals.
