Real Madrid football club of Spain on Wednesday night defeated Liverpool Football club to progress into the semi-final phase of the money spinning competition as they held Liverpool to a crucial away draw.
With the win, Real Madrid has set up a semi-final meeting with Chelsea football club who defeated Porto on away goal difference.
Real arrived at Anfield protecting a 3-1 lead from the first leg and while they eventually went through in relative comfort Liverpool will curse themselves for missing several glorious first-half chances.
Mohamed Salah shot straight at Real keeper Thibaut Courtois, who also saved well from James Milner, in the opening moments and shot over when he should have hit the target while Georginio Wijnaldum was also guilty of squandering an opportunity to at least apply pressure to Zinedine Zidane’s side.
Real’s best chance saw Benzema drive in a shot that was deflected on to the post, while Courtois was in action again to block Roberto Firmino’s angled shot after the break.
