Liverpool came from behind to beat Bordeaux 2-1 at Anfield on Thursday night to book their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League.

The visitors took a shock lead in the 33rd minute when Simon Mignolet inexplicably gave away an indirect free-kick after holding on to the ball for an age in the area. The ball was nudged to Henri Saivet who fired into the top corner for 0-1.

Liverpool drew level just five minutes later when Christian Benteke was hauled down in the area and James Milner slotted home the resulting spot kick for 1-1 in the 38th minute.

Benteke then gave the Merseysiders the lead just before half-time when he smashed the ball home from the edge of the area to make it 2-1 at the break.

Both sides had chances in the second half but no further goals were scored as Liverpool held on to record a 2-1 victory and with it seal progression to the knockout stages of the Europa League with a game to spare.
