Inzaghi Double Ends Liverpool Dream in Athens

Inzaghi Double Ends Liverpool Dream in AthensPippo Inzaghi struck twice as AC Milan gained revenge for their 2005 Champions League final defeat against Liverpool with victory in Athens.

Inzaghi scored a freak opener in first-half injury time, unwittingly deflecting Andrea Pirlo's free-kick past a wrong-footed Pepe Reina.

Steven Gerrard missed a glorious chance to equalise before Inzaghi slid home a second eight minutes from time. Dirk Kuyt pulled one back with a header with a minute left, but time ran out.
