Real Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu thanks to Karim Benzema's close-range first half strike. Despite a number of changes from Reds manager Brendan Rodgers, his weakened side did him proud with Kolo Toure, Javi Manquillo, Joe Allen and Lazar Markovic stand out performers. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet also had a busy night between the sticks although he was beaten after 27 minutes when Marcelo's wonderful pacey left-foot cross was turned home into the roof of the net by Benzema for his fifth Champions League goal in just four games - the last time he scored in four successive CL appearances was March 2011. The introduction of Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho failed to inspire the Reds in the second half who now need to win their remaining two games in Group B against Ludogorets and Basel to reach the knockout stage of the competition. Victory helps Los Blancos guarantee a spot in the last-16."
