Liverpool into quarters with 4-0 win over Madrid

Liverpool into quarters with 4-0 win over Madrid

Captain Steven Gerrard scored twice as Liverpool stormed into the quarterfinals of the Champions League with a 4-0 victory over Real Madrid on Tuesday.
Protecting a 1-0 first-leg lead, Fernando Torres paved the way for a comfortable night by finding the target after 16 minutes before Gerrard scored either side of the break. Andrea Dossena rounded off the comprehensive victory in the last minute.
It will renew manager Rafa Benitez's hopes of repeating the 2005 title triumph to deflect attention from his inability to end the club's 19-year wait for an English title.
The scintillating display will also raise Benitez's stock at Madrid, where he served in coaching roles for a decade.
