Liverpool (1) - (1) Atletico Madrid

Steven Gerrard crashed home a last-gasp penalty as Liverpool edged closer to the Champions League knockout stages with a 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid.

The Reds skipper kept his composure from the spot to send Leo Franco the wrong way and earn a richly deserved point after Maxi Rodriguez's first-half effort had threatened to give the visitors a shock triumph.

It means a win over Marseille in Matchday Five will book Rafael Benitez's side's place in the last 16 after the French outfit defeated PSV Eindhoven.
