Liverpool started their Europa League campaign with a frustrating 1-1 draw against French side Bordeaux.
The Reds rested more than a few first team players for the contest and played an absolute mundane game on the night.
Kolo Toure started alongside Mamadou Sakho in the central defense but the Ivorian defender was forced to leave the field after 28 minutes due to injury. The former Arsenal star was replaced by Chirivella.
In attack, the chief architect was none other than superstar Brazilian playmaker Phil Coutinho who came the closest with a thunderous strike late in the first half. England international Adam Lallana returned from injury and played full 90 minutes.
The former Southampton star had more than a few decent chances to score but he wasted them. Fortunately, in the 65th minute, Adam eventually scored to give Liverpool the lead. However, once again poor defending cost the Reds and Jussie equalized nine minutes from time for Bordeaux.
