Liverpool score valuable away win in Champions League

2:33 pm on 26 February 2009

Liverpool have scored a valuable 1-0 away win over Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 football tie.

Chelsea beat Juventus in London, also 1-0, but last year's runners-up might regret not finishing the tie off.

Chelsea went into the lead just 12 minutes into the first half and dominated throughout the opening spell but lost their way after the break.

In other matches Bayern Munich beat Sporting Lisbon 5-0 and Spain's Villarreal drew 1-1 with Greek club Panathinaikos.
