Liverpool has lost 4 times in a row now as Lyon scores a very late winner.
Yossi Benayoun put the hosts ahead just ahead of the half-time break but substitute Maxime Gonalons equalised in the 72 minute and fellow replacement Cesar Delgado struck in injury time to break further deepen Liverpool’s woes.
It was the worst possible result for Benitez, who watched as his side slumped to their fourth straight defeat and now face an uphill struggle to qualify from the group stage of the competition for a sixth straight year.
To make matters worse, captain Steven Gerrard was forced off after just 25 minutes, casting doubt over his participation in the weekend’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.
