Torres came close within 20  minutes but liverpool held firm in the game and defended very well.

Real had most of the possession but it was Spanish international Xabi Alonso who almost broke the deadlock with a trademark 50 yard drive from inside his own half.The midfielder is famous for such effrontery, once scoring a similar goal at Luton, but this time Casillas had to scramble back to touch the effort over the bar.

Madrid sent on Guti for Marcelo at the break, with Fabio Cannavaro booked for a foul on Kuyt soon after the restart.

Liverpool had not allowed Real to indulge themselves with the expansive game that has swept so many aside of late. Javier Mascherano’s snap and drive in midfield was the yardstick for others to follow.

Torres, kept under close control by Cannavaro, was booked for a swipe at Lassana Diarra’s ankles, the game now stretched as both sides searched for the vital breakthrough.Reds boss Rafa Benitez replaced a disappointing Torres with Ryan Babel after 62 minutes, to predictable derision from the home fans at the former Atletico Madrid man.

Mascherano was next into the book for a foul on Fernando Gago, Reina yet to have a serious shot to save in the half.

That was to come after 70 minutes when Reina touched over a dipping drive from Robben, Madrid starting to show more urgency as the minutes ticked away.However, Liverpool were still comfortable and things got even better with eight minutes left.

Gabriel Heinze’s foul on Kuyt gave Aurelio the opportunity to curl in a free-kick that Benayoun headed past Casillas from six yards.Benayoun was engulfed by his jubilant team-mates and way up above them, 3,000 Liverpool fans erupted.Liverpool now take this priceless win back to anfield with home advantage well in the bag.Rafa asllo cleared up the rumour he was leaving this week was not true but still left this thoughts open on the new contract watch this space interview to come..will he sign?
