Jurgen Klopp‘s side had 63.9 percent of the possession and fired 16 shots on goal to Spartak’s four, but failed to breach the Russian side’s stoic defence more than once.
That was Spartak’s first shot on target, which has long been a trend for the Reds during Klopp’s reign.
Klopp’s side now have just one more game before the October international break, away to Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday.
Having won just once in their last six outings in all competitions, they will be hoping something clicks at St James’ Park, as it was more of the same in Europe.
