Anzhi Makhachkala: Georgi Gabulov, Logashov, Samba, Joao Carlos, Tagirbekov, Ahmedov, Jucilei, Zhirkov, Eto’o, Boussoufa, Traore.

Subs: Pomazan, Gadzhibekov, Agalarov, Lakhiyalov, Carcela-Gonzalez, Smolov, Burmistrov.

Liverpool: Jones, Wisdom, Carragher, Coates, Flanagan, Henderson, Coady, Cole, Shelvey, Downing, Morgan.

Subs: Gulacsi, Assaidi, Pacheco, Wilson, Fernandez Saez, Sama, Robinson.

Referee: David Fernandez Borbalan (Spain)
