Liverpool were able to take an important step towards reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 3-1 victory.

laughed off having lighters thrown at him and his team-mates during last night's win over


, claiming it might help fans quit smoking.

Liverpool beat Benfica last night in the round of 8 of the Champions League in Lisbon with goals from Ibrahima Konate, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz. Towards the end of the game, however, Robertson, who was about to take a corner kick, was attacked by a fan with lighters. After the game, the Scottish defender claimed that such behavior should not be tolerated in stadiums.

"I had quite a few lighters thrown at me – maybe it will help them stop smoking.

"You've got to take the positives. We've seen it a lot, people getting hit, luckily they were all quite close to me but they didn't hit me.

"It's tough when it's late in the game and the fans are frustrated but you should not throw stuff onto the pitch. It could hurt people.

"I was just trying to take the corner and get out of there as quick as possible."

With last night's victory in Portugal, Liverpool will have an easy mission in the return match at Anfield.
