Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish said his side have the upper hand after their draw with Sparta Prague in the Europa League round of 32.
The 0-0 draw at Generali Arena in Prague held few highlights, but the Reds legend was in no doubt about what the result meant for the English Premier League club heading into the second leg at Anfield on Thursday.
“A goalless draw’s always a decent result. You’d like the away goal but I’d say it’s advantage us,” Dalglish told Channel Five.
“We’ve been scoring some goals recently and we haven’t done that tonight, but in Europe it’s slightly different. We’re quite pleased with a goalless draw and it was good experience for a few players.”
With regulars Steven Gerrard and Daniel Agger missing due to injury, the Liverpool boss used the match to hand defender Danny Wilson his European debut while also giving a rare start to striker David N’Gog.
