Fiorentina 2 Liverpool 0

Liverpool lost 2-0 away to Serie A side Fiorentina in their Champions League Group E match in Florence. Montenegro international Stevan Jovetic scored an excellent first half brace to hand the Reds their first away defeat in Europe since April 2008.

Teenage sensation Jovetic underlined exactly why he is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in world football. The 19-year-old opened the scoring on 27 minutes when he collected Cristiano Zanetti's through ball before firing past Jose Reina in the Liverpool goal.

Fiorentina were two-nil up just 10-minutes later when Jovetic redirected a Juan Manuel Vargas shot past the flatfooted Reina. Liverpool dominated the second half but failed to find the back of the net creating serious doubts over their qualification for the knockout stages.
