Liverpool has played out a 1-1 draw with Rubin Kazan in Thursday's Europa League clash, after failing to take advantage of the 10-man Russian side.

Emre Can cancelled out Marko Devic's well-taken opener for Rubin to notch the first goal of the Klopp era, but despite playing against 10 men for 54 minutes following Oleg Kuzmin's dismissal, Liverpool could not find a winner.

The fit-again Christian Benteke, on as a second-half substitute, came closest with a shot that hit the post, but he could not prevent Liverpool registering a third successive 1-1 draw in Group B and the second stalemate of Klopp's tenure after Saturday's 0-0 draw at Tottenham Hotspur.
