Five things that we learned from Liverpool’s draw with Basel…
Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw with Basel on Tuesday evening as our Champions League fate was sealed, here are five things that we learned from the game:
It’s the Europa League for Liverpool
There was no repeat of that magical night at Anfield in 2004, when Liverpool came from behind to beat Olympiacos 3-1. Steven Gerrard was at the heart of another late revival for the Reds’ but could not secure the victory needed to send us into the Champions League knockout stages. We will instead be facing up to the prospect of playing in the Europa League after Christmas. The winner’s of the competition receive a place in the Champions League next season, and that should be motivation enough for us to go all out for success.
