Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher feels his side is in control ahead of the Europa League Round of 32 return leg on February 24 at Anfield.

The Reds held Czech outfit Sparta Prague to a scoreless draw at AXA Arena on Thursday night and Carragher is of firm belief that the result favours the Merseyside club for the second bout.

"A goalless draw's always a decent result, you'd like the away goal but I'd say it's advantage us," he said.

"We've been scoring some goals recently and we haven't done that tonight but in Europe it's slightly different, we're quite pleased with a goalless draw and it was good experience for a few players."
