Liverpool 3-0 Lille
UEFA Europa League
18 March 2010
Liverpool started off strong and controlled the match as they won 3-0 on Thursday night.
Lucas would earn a penalty kick for the home side as he was tripped up while dribbling into the box. Steven Gerrard stepped up to take the penalty and converted in the 9th minute as Liverpool led 1-0.
It was now 1-1 on aggregate and Lille still very much alive. The difference would be two second half goals from Fernando Torres who scored in the 49th minute and 90th minute to seal the 3-0 victory.
It was a vintage Liverpool performance at Anfield as they controlled the match and Lille had few scoring chances. Torres once again showed his goal scoring ability that can rival anyone in the world.
The quarterfinal draw will be released on Friday.
