Albert Riera has spoken of his relief at not getting in the way of Yossi Benayoun’s winning header at the Bernabeu last night.

“I was just in front of Yossi,” said Riera. “I think Higuain touched me and that made a bit of space for Yossi, so I left the ball for him and he made a great contact.”

“It was a great header and a really important goal for us so you have to give Yossi a lot of credit for that It was really good to see the ball hit the back of the net because we know how important away goals can be.”

“It was the most important moment and it was a big victory for us because it means that maybe now we have a little bit of an advantage – but it is not a massive advantage.”

“We made the game uncomfortable for Real Madrid because we knew that was what we had to do if we were to give ourselves a good chance.”

“We always feel that we have a chance because we have some great players and we were waiting for the big moment to come and when it did we were delighted.”

Riera insists Liverpool are not clear favourites to progress, despite taking the away goal back to Anfield – and the fact that Liverpool have never been knocked out of Europe after winning the first leg away from home.

“In big games like this no-one is ever the favourite – it comes down to what happens on the pitch on the night,” he added.
