14 February 2013 07:17

Liverpool conceded two goals in less than three minutes at Zenit St Petersburg to leave their Europa League campaign hanging in the balance folllowing a 2-0 defeat.

Despite having failed to properly test goalkeeper Vyacheslav Malafeev with a number of chances, the Reds seemed to be managing to hold on in their last-32 Europa League first-leg tie in the sub-zero Petrovsky Stadium.

But with 20 minutes remaining Hulk powered home a brilliant 30-yard strike before substitute Sergei Semak converted from close-range moments later.
