  1. The whistle goes for full-time and Liverpool are into the hat for tomorrow's Europa League play-off draw after an emphatic 3-0 victory over Gomel at Anfield that clinches a 4-0 aggregate success.

  2. 90

    Is there time for one more goal? Suarez will not stop trying as he goes for a shot from 25 yards, but it is a harmless effort that Bushma holds easily.

  3. 88

    Agger stays alert in a potentially dangerous situation to head the ball back into the arms of Reina.

  4. 86

    Lucas, who missed so much of last season due to injury, receives a well-deserved ovation for a solid display as he is replaced by Spearing.

  5. 85

    Gomel's final change sees Klimovich make way for Yevseyenko.

  6. 84

    Gerrard releases Suarez with an outrageous flick but the flag goes up for offside and, despite the Uruguayan's protestations, it was the right decision.

  7. 82

    Gerrard draws a comfortable save out of Bushma with a shot from distance before Downing sweeps an effort wide.

  8. 80

    Liverpool's passing has been slick all evening but they have also had good variety to their attacking play, with Suarez's dribbling the highlight of their performance and Downing also a threat on the right wing.

  9. 78

    Liverpool may be on the brink of sealing a place in the next round but they are still working hard to close down their opponents at the earliest possible opportunity.

  10. 76

    Rodgers makes a double change and Carragher is greeted by a huge roar as he replaces Skrtel. Adam is also on for Shelvey in midfield.

  11. 75

    Gomel make a second change as Kirilchik comes on for Kozeka for the closing quarter of an hour.

  12. 72

    GOAL! Johnson makes it 3-0 to Liverpool on the night with a stunning left-footed volley from outside the area that leaves Bushma with no chance as it flies past his despairing dive.

  13. 70

    Suarez tries his luck from 25 yards and it is a dangerous, dipping strike, but Bushma makes the save and gets up quickly to gather the ball before it squirms away.

  14. 68

    Gomel have been harder to break down in this second half and it will be interesting to see if their superior match-fitness, having started their domestic season some time ago, becomes a factor in the closing stages.

  15. 66

    Gomel finally enjoy a spell of possession but they waste the opportunity to apply some serious pressure as Alumona lets the ball get away from him and ends up fouling Agger.

  16. 64

    Liverpool win a free-kick 25 yards from goal and Suarez steps up to take it, but he may not be getting the next set-piece after blazing his effort over the bar.

  17. 62

    It is Gomel who make the first change of the night as Nowak is withdrawn and Lipatkin comes on in his place.

  18. 61

    Gomel win a corner but it comes to nothing. Liverpool's defence has been well organised tonight and Rodgers will be pleased with their solidity at the back if they go on to keep a clean sheet.

  19. 59

    Shelvey has certainly not been holding back in the tackle and he is shown a yellow card following a mistimed challenge on Kozeka that results in the Gomel man requiring attention from the physio.

  20. 58

    Gomel have been unable to keep possession for a significant period of time all night and Liverpool deserve credit for their committed approach to winning the ball back.
