Half-Time Report: Liverpool goalless against Anzhi Makhachkala

Both Liverpool and Anzhi Makhachkala fail to score during the opening 45 minutes of tonight's Europa League Group A match at Anfield.

Both Liverpool and Anzhi Makhachkala have failed to make the breakthrough during the opening 45 minutes of tonight's Europa League Group A match at Anfield.

The hosts were far superior in the first half but were unable to get the ball in the Russian net.

The first real opening of the half came after 12 minutes as Luis Suarez's effort went straight into the arms of Vladimir Gabulov.

Anzhi's goalkeeper was called into action again soon after as he beat away Glen Johnson's drive.

The hosts were soon in control and Jonjo Shelvey should have done better midway through the half when he blasted over, despite having plenty of time and space to get a shot away.

Liverpool's best opportunity came with 10 minutes left to play as Johnson lost his footing at the crucial time when in on goal. The defender claimed that he had been tripped by the Anzhi defender but the referee dismissed the appeals.
