There were some unbelievable scenes near the final minutes of Liverpool's Champions League fixture against Bulgarian Cinderella story Ludogorets Razgrad on Tuesday.

After Mario Balotelli opened the scoring with his first Liverpool goal in the 82nd minute, Ludogorets silenced the supporters at Anfield in injury time when Dani Abalo received an excellent pass from Hamza Younes and proceeded to skip past goalkeeper Simon Mignolet before slotting the ball home.


In case you missed it, Abalo celebrated his goal by waiting for a disabled fan to reach the edge of the pitch in order to give him a hug.

Unfortunately for Ludogorets, a costly error from 'keeper Milan Borjan led to a 93rd-minute penalty that Steven Gerrard blasted into the bottom right corner to give Liverpool a 2-1 win.

It was a heartbreaking ending for a side that's turned heads throughout their Champions League campaign.
