Anfield—England, United Kingdom.
Europa League, Round of 32 Second Leg
Liverpool 3-1 Zenit St. Petersburg (3-3 on aggregate)
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.
