Liverpool have been stunned 2-0 by Italian side Fiorentina in their Champions League football encounter.

Five-times European champions Liverpool made a timid start, which only encouraged the hosts to shake off their stage-fright and push forward and were soon rewarded with two goals.

Italian side Inter Milan were held to a one all draw by Russian champions Rubin Kazan.
