Dirk Kuyt headed a late winner to snatch a 1-0 victory over Sparta Prague in Kenny Dalglish's first European tie as Liverpool manager.
Kuyt finally broke the resistance of a determined Sparta side with the only goal of a testing Europa League affair five minutes from the end of the second leg at Anfield.
Both sides had squandered numerous chances in a scrappy last-32 encounter but Liverpool's superior quality was eventually rewarded by the hard-working Kuyt.
