The result leaves the Reds in third spot in Group A with just one point, needing now to win at Besiktas or even at Marseille to have a genuine chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.
"It was a poor game for us, we did not play well and we did not make many chances. It was clearly not our day," Benitez said. "It could well be described as one of the worst performances I have had as manager, certainly at Anfield."
