Liverpool made it two stalemates from two games under Jurgen Klopp after coming from behind to draw 1-1 with 10-man Rubin Kazan at Anfield in the Europa League.
The Reds are handily, yet in some ways precariously positioned in Group B as they sit outright second on three points ahead of the return leg in Russia in two weeks' time.
There was a huge amount of anticipation and excitement ahead of the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager's first game on Merseyside, with the hope being that he would turn around their recent ailing fortunes - with the club's American owners even gracing Anfield with their presence - but there was a familiar story as Liverpool had over 30 shots but failed to find the winning goal.
Marko Devic took advantage of some slack defending to open the scoring with a very well-taken finish for the visitors, before their captain Oleg Kuzmin decided to get himself sent off for two bookable offences.
The introduction of the returning Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino couldn't yield a winner, even if they did start to open the visitors' back line a little more, with the former hitting the post.
Ultimately, a familiarly frustrating night for the Reds, but plenty for the side to work with.
