12 LIVER­POOL 3 OLYMPIA­COS 1

Group stage, 2004-05

Australian Four Four Two - - FEATURES -

Liver­pool’s other Euro­pean mir­a­cle of 2004-05. The Reds en­tered the fi­nal group match three points be­hind the Greeks, need­ing a win by two clear goals to sneak through on head-to-head hav­ing lost 1-0 away. Ri­valdo put Olympia­cos 1-0 up, but the un­likely duo of Florent Si­nama Pon­golle and Neil Mel­lor made it 2-1. With the min­utes ticking down, Jamie Car­ragher lobbed the ball into the box for Mel­lor, who nod­ded it down for Steven Ger­rard to wal­lop home (top).
