Voronin strike gives Liverpool victory at Toulouse

Andriy Voronin scored two minutes before halftime and five-time champion Liverpool won 1-0 at Toulouse on Wednesday to move a step closer to the lucrative first round of the European Champions League.

Voronin collected a headed pass from Peter Crouch and scored on a rising 20-yard shot the 43rd minute. The victory gives last season's runner-up an edge when it hosts Toulouse in two weeks in the second leg of the third-round, home-and-home series.

"Andriy scored a wonderful goal. It summed up his qualities as a very fine striker," Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez said. "We did a very professional job in a match played in difficult conditions. It was so hot for the players and we were having to give them water continually."

Arsenal won 2-0 at Sparta Prague on goals by Cesc Fabregas in the 72nd minute and Alexander Hleb in the 90th.

David Kalivoda's 76th-minute penalty kick gave Slavia Prague a 1-0 victory at four-time European champion Ajax Amsterdam. Sevilla, which has won the last two UEFA Cups, cruised to a 2-0 victory over AEK Athens on second-half goals by Luis Fabiano (48th minute) and Frederic Kanoute (68th).

Werder Bremen overcame a first-half deficit to beat Dinamo Zagreb 2-1 at home. Bosko Balaban gave Zagreb the lead two minutes before halftime but second-half substitutes Hugo Almeida and Daniel Jensen rallied the German team.

"We had to change something in the second half and the early goal did us a load of good. We played much better after the break," said Werder coach Thomas Schaaf, whose team has been hit by a series of injuries to key players.

Gennady Bliznuk scored a last-minute equalizer for Belarussian club BATE for a 2-2 tie at home against 1986 European Cup winner Steaua Bucharest.

Paul Hartley's 21st-minute goal gave Scottish champion Glasgow Celtic the lead at Spartak Moscow but Roman Pavluchenko equalized in the 42nd.

In Wednesday's other games, it was Fenerbahce 1, Anderlecht 0; Salzburg 1, Shakhtar Donetsk 0; Sarajevo 0, Dynamo Kiev 1; FC Zurich 1, Besiktas 1; and Tampere United 0, Rosenberg 3.
