Liverpool must beat FC Augsburg at Anfield to reach the last-16 of the UEFA Europa League after the teams played out a goal-less draw at the WWK Arena on Thursday.
The Reds were denied victory in Germany by the well-drilled hosts, who stood firm in the face of a concerted second-half assault from the visitors.
And Augsburg might even have snatched victory at the death but was denied a famous win when Ji Dong-Won’s arrowed effort clipped the bottom of the post.
The two teams will now meet again at Anfield next week to decide what is a well-poised European tie.
