Euro Leagues | Liverpool frustrated by VAR

Cool finish: Brighton’s Pascal Gross scores the equaliser against Liverpool.  

A stoppage time penalty from Pascal Gross left Liverpool frustrated as it was forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Brighton on Saturday after a Diogo Jota goal looked to have secured a win for Jurgen Klopp’s side. Gross drilled home his spot kick after a pitchside monitor review saw Andy Robertson punished for kicking the foot of Danny Welbeck. Liverpool had earlier seen two goals ruled out by VAR.

Inter Milan continued its roller-coaster season by scoring twice in the first 15 minutes on way to a convincing 3-0 win at previously unbeaten Sassuolo in Serie A on Saturday.

The win moved Inter into second place with 18 points, ahead of Sassuolo on goal difference and two behind leader AC Milan.
