Liverpool came back from a goal down to ease past Unirea in this Europa League battle. Having brought a slender one goal lead from the first leg at Anfield Rafa Benitez would have been very nervous when Romanian champions Unirea scored through Bruno Fernandes.
However the Merseyside club leveled on the night when Javier Mascherano scored his first goal for Liverpool. Ryan Babel added a second to calm the nerves. Steven Gerrard added a third early in the second half to seal the victory.
The Anfield side now progresses to the last 16 of the Europa League where they will face a potentially tricky tire against Lille.
