Liverpool avoided a potential Europa League embarrassment in Romania as they came from behind to book their place in the last 16 with a 3-1 win over Unirea Urziceni.

Shaky defending from set-pieces in the first half saw the Reds fall behind to Bruno Fernandes' header in the 19th minute and for a while they looked rattled.

However, Javier Mascherano from long-range, and Ryan Babel from close, turned things around before the interval, and Steven Gerrard's 33rd European goal wrapped up a 4-1 aggregate win following their 1-0 victory back at Anfield.
