Liverpool wins Real Madrid 1-0

February 26, 2009 at 2:54 am (sports) (, , , , )

Liverpool took a significant step towards the Champions League quarter-finals with a 1-0 win over Real Madrid.

The Spanish side headed into the last-16 clash as La Liga’s form team but a typically efficient Liverpool performance saw Rafael Benitez’s side return home with a lead – and a vital away goal – to take into the second leg at Anfield.

Yossi Benayoun headed home Fabio Aurelio’s 82nd-minute free-kick to earn a clinical Liverpool victory.

Liverpool also went close through Fernando Torres and Xabi Alonso, who were both denied by fine saves from Iker Casillas, while Madrid’s best effort was an Arjen Robben piledriver that Jose Reina tipped over.
