Bayer Leverkusen 1 - 3 Liverpool

6 - 2 on aggregate, Pool through to Final 8 (Hyypia, Biscan, Riise & Garcia Overjoyed)

Liverpool made it through to the quarterfinals of Champions League, by beating Bayer Leverkusen 1 - 3 in Germany on Wednesday (Thursday morning, Singapore time).

It was a magnificent display by the team, owing to the fact that they were missing many key players due to injuries. Youngster Stephen Warnock got the chance to play in this important match due to an injury to Traore. He put up a decent performance & might probably earn more of such 1st team football.

2 great strikes from Luis Garcia in the 1st half from corners were enough to settle the tie. Milan Baros added a third in the second period & a late consolation goal from Leverkusen set up the final scoreline of 1 - 3.

Wonderful win by the Reds, they could be meeting Lyon in the quarterfinals; tough games ahead. Hopefully, they will do well in the Champions League & shut some critics up.
