Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan scored against Liverpool for the second time in a week to end the Merseysiders' dreams of a third European final in five years, despite Rafael Benitez's men winning 2-1 on the night after extra time at Anfield.

The former Manchester United forward, who hit the only goal in the first leg, stabbed home the crucial extra-time away goal which booked Atletico's place in May's Europa League final.

Alberto Aquilani's 44th-minute strike had ensured the game went into the additional 30 minutes and despite Yossi Benayoun putting his side ahead Forlan - much derided for his time in English football with Manchester United - had the last word.
