Champions League Results
4 more Champions League qualifying games took place today in Europe.
Liverpool steal a win
Liverpool was going into this match with a 0-0 aggregate against Standard Liege and it took them 90 minutes to finally score a goal and advance into the next round of the Champions League.
Dirk Kuyt scored the goal for Liverpool in stoppage time to give Liverpool an unimpressive win.
Atletico Score 4 and Advance
Atletico Madrid needed to win this match against Schalke in order to advance to the Champions League group stage. They did just that, winning 4-0 and moving on with a 4-1 aggregate.
Goals were scored by Aguero, Forlan, Luis Garcia, Maxi Rodriguez, and Schalke will now be playing in the UEFA tournament this season.
Arsenal Dominate 4-0
After an unconvincing 2-0 win in the first leg against FC Twente, Arsenal dominated the second leg 4-0 to advance to the next round.
Theo Walcott was the man of the match scoring a goal and setting up another, while Samir Nasri, William Gallas, and Nicklas Bendtner all scored.
Fiorentina Advance with Draw
Fiorentina was held to a 0-0 draw with Slavia Prague, but advanced 2-0 on aggregate.
This is Fiorentina's first time in the Champions League group stage since 1999-2000.
