Karim Benzema scored a late goal on Wednesday as Real Madrid sent Liverpool out of the Champions League, winning 6-2 on aggregate.
The first leg in England had ended 5-2 in favour of Madrid, while the second leg produced only a goal by the French striker.
After a goalless first half, Madrid eventually scored on 78 minutes through Benzema. Vinicius Junior fed Benzema, who tapped the ball into an empty net.
Earlier, a fine pass found Federico Valverde in space inside the box, he looked up and drilled a low shot towards the middle of the goal, but the Alisson reacted superbly to deny him.
