Five-time European champions they may be but Liverpool must wait before they can take their place in the last 32 of the Europa League after allowing Swiss side Young Boys to draw 2-2 at Anfield on Thursday.

Coach Brendan Rodgers left Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard on the bench after which Jonjo Shelvey and the recalled Joe Cole scored to sandwich a riposte from Raul Bobadilla. With just two minutes remaining Elsad Zverotic had the visiting fans on their feet as he thrashed a fine strike past Pepe Reina. Liverpool may now need to win their final game at Udinese.

Tottenham also managed only a 0-0 draw at Lazio — who qualify — meaning they also have to gain a point in their final game at home to Panathinaikos.
