So, latest Liverpool football news is that they were pretty lucky to get through the first Champions League group B game.
Playing a little known team, Ludogorets, it was expected that the goals would flow….however it did not happen.
Mario Balotelli scored his first goal in front of the Kop, and at 82 minutes looked to be the winner….but the Liverpool faithful were silenced when Dani Abalo scored in the last minute of normal time.
So…settle for a draw?
Oh no….a calamity by the visiting goal keeper gave away a needless penalty which Steven Gerrard gratefully tucked away to give LFC a winning start.
Liverpool football tickets will sell quick…a nervy start, but a grit and belief got them through, so well done The Reds…..but with Real Madrid waiting in the wings there are much, much more demanding tests awaiting the Rogers Revolution!
The pride of pulling on a Liverpool football jersey is evident, and if they can win ugly, then turn on the style later against Real, this game will be looked upon as an “initiation” back into the Champions League circus.
