Champions League: Reds' victory

Liverpool's Steven Warnock clashes with CSKA Sofia's Emil Gargarov
Liverpool have reached the group stage of the Champions League despite a 1-0 defeat at Anfield on Tuesday.

An impressive goal from CSKA Sofia's Valentin Iliev after just 16 minutes gave the away side the match, but the Reds still won 3-2 on aggregate.

Liverpool started the game 3-1 up from the first leg, and were expected to secure an easy win.

But John Arne Riise came closest to scoring for the Reds, who struggled to find continuity on the pitch.
