UEFA CL: Liverpool knocked into Europa League

Five-time champions, Liverpool were knocked out of the Champions League after failing to defeat Swiss champions Basel, who advance to the last-16 phase.

Fabian Frei shot the visitors ahead on 25 minutes, when he exchanged a one-two with Luca Zuffi before drilling home.

Sent off

Liverpool played the final 30 minutes with 10 men when sub Lazar Markovic was controversially sent off when his flailing hand brushed Behrang Safari.

Steven Gerrard's sublime free-kick with 10 minutes gave the Reds hope but Brendan Rodgers' side will now play in the Europa League.
