FC Anji Makhachkala's UEFA Europa League ambitions enjoyed a major boost as the Russian side leapfrogged Liverpool FC at the Group A summit following edging a hard-fought encounter in Moscow.

Guus Hiddink's men were far from their best and found it difficult to break down inexperienced if stubborn visitors. However, a moment of brilliance from Lacina Traoré, who produced an excellent turn and finish, sealed all three points for the team from Dagestan. The Reds rarely threatened, but, for all their possession, Anji were unable to add to their lead.
