Highlights from Liverpool legends vs Real Madrid legends

Liverpool fans must have been fearing a long two-week break without football ahead of their Merseyside derby at the start of April.

Luckily for them, legends from Liverpool and Real Madrid thought they would fill an absent weekend by putting on a show for a packed Anfield.

Liverpool – with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Robbie Fowler – faced Madrid – who had the likes of Luis Figo, Clarence Seedorf and Roberto Carlos in their line-up.

What followed was an incredible seven-goal thriller as Liverpool won 4-3.

The star of the show was Gerrard, who set up Michael Owen with a brilliant run and cross in the first-half.

After the break, Gerrard played a low cross into the box that was tapped in by an ageing John Aldridge.

The recently retired midfielder was then brought down by former Liverpool ‘keeper Jerzy Dudek before allowing Robbie Fowler to get himself on the scoresheet to make it 3-0.

Gerrard then crashed a screamer against the bar before finally getting a goal for himself.

Jason McAteer whipped in a cross from the right and Gerrard took one brilliant touch before volleying past Dudek.

Madrid threatened to make an incredible comeback with three quick-fire goals from Edwin Congo, Fernando Morientes and Ruben de la Red. But Liverpool held out and took the win in an entertaining match.

While it was a brilliant spectacle, the most important thing was raising money for charity – which was the purpose of the match as it helped raise funds for Liverpool Foundation.
