Liverpool will be confident of progressing to the last 16 of the Europa League after securing a goalless draw in the first leg of their tie with Augsburg in Germany.
Jurgen Klopp's side held their own, and although their opponents had slightly the better of an uneventful game, they probably deserved to avoid defeat.
Daniel Sturridge, fresh from grabbing a brace in his comeback game at Aston Villa on Sunday, had a shot saved while he also should have done better when James Milner's cross found him free six yards out, but the striker made a mess of his effort.
Former Sunderland player Ji Dong-won came close to winning the game for the hosts late on but his shot took a slight deflection and hit the outside of the post.
Aside from a couple of attempts at goal from Sturridge and Roberto Firmino, the first half was largely forgettable despite the best efforts of a raucous home crowd.
Augsburg goalkeeper Marwin Hitz saved those two earlier efforts and he was called into action after the break again when a Liverpool free-kick was deflected goalwards by team-mate Paul Verhaegh.
Sturridge's dreadful miss from close range not long after the break was perhaps Liverpool's final real opening and they were almost made to pay for it when the home side almost snatched the win late on.
Stafylidis beat Simon Mignolet with his shot but the ball drifted past the far post before at the death, Ji's strike from eight yards went just past the upright.
All-in-all a satisfactory night for Klopp on his return to Germany and Liverpool will be confident of progressing after the second leg at Anfield but this was not a game which will live long in the memory.
