Hearts v Liverpool

Anglo-Scottish ties of the past have seen great games and Thursday's clash lived up to its predecessors with a close game won by an unlucky own goal from Hearts defender Andy Webster.

Both sides had chances to score with Novikovas and Taouil both coming close for Hearts and Fabio Borini smashing a shot against the post just before half-time for Liverpool.  The winning goal came on 78 minutes after a swinging cross from Liverpool right back Martin Kelly missed everyone including the attacking run of Fabio Borini to clip the leg of Andy Webster and give Liverpool a 1-0 win.

Liverpool from the win have an away goal to take back to Anfield for the second leg this coming Thursday with the victor progressing to the Europa League group stage draw.
