Liverpool FC fell just short of writing another chapter in their history of famous European comebacks as they beat FC Zenit St Petersburg 3-1 only to exit the UEFA Europa League on away goals.

Trailing 2-0 from the first leg in Russia, Liverpool made the worst possible start when Jamie Carragher's fluffed back pass released Hulk to increase Zenit's advantage, but two Luis Suárez free-kicks either side of Joe Allen's strike left Luciano Spalletti's visitors hanging on. Hang on they did, though, and the Russian champions' reward is a round of 16 meeting with FC Basel 1893.
