Fernando Torres delivered a scintillating solo performance to torment his old adversaries Real Madrid and send Liverpool into the Champions League quarter-finals.

Torres, for so long the symbol of Real’s fierce rivals Atletico Madrid, returned from injury to spearhead a Liverpool display that once again re-inforced their credentials in Europe’s elite competition.

He put Liverpool ahead after 16 minutes when he turned in Dirk Kuyt’s cross from close range – although Real complained bitterly that defender Pepe had been fouled in the build up.

Real also felt they were harshly treated when Steven Gerrard scored Liverpool’s second from the spot 12 minutes later after Gabriel Heinze had been penalised for handball.

The brutal truth for Real was that they were outclassed, with Liverpool underlining their vast superiority when Gerrard slammed home the third from Ryan Babel’s cross two minutes after the interval.
