Liverpool scored two goals against Real Madrid in the first leg of the European Champions League round of 16 held at Anfield on the 22nd at 5:00 am (Korean time) at Anfield, Liverpool, England, but scored two goals each to Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior, 2-5. was defeated by
It was a Liverpool atmosphere only until the first 15 minutes of the first half. In the 4th minute of the first half, Darwin Núñez shook the net and took the lead, and in the 14th minute of the first half, Salah, who did not miss Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois’ chest trapping mistake, rushed in and scored a key goal. However, the 2-0 advantage did not last long. In the 21st minute of the first half, Vinicius, who exchanged a one-two pass with Benzema, broke down the opponent’s defense and split the Liverpool net with his right foot. In the 36th minute of the first half, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson’s clearing mistake hit Vinicius’ body and was refracted and sucked into the net. In the 2nd minute of the second half, Militang’s header equalized, and in the 10th and 22nd minutes of the second half, Benzema’s relay goal was lost, 2-5.
Coach Klopp couldn’t help but laugh at the disastrous defense that collapsed absurdly under Real Madrid’s offensive. In an interview with BT Sports right after the come-from-behind defeat, he said, “The start was great. In a word, it was our game. We played perfectly the way we wanted. Except for Real Madrid’s goal, the first half was good.” “The first goal got a little bit passive as we went up the pitch and we couldn’t keep up with them. The second goal was complete slapstick. It shouldn’t have been 2-2,” he reflected. “We had five or six players and no one challenged us. We were so passive until the ball got there,” Klopp said of Vinicius’ first goal. I couldn’t help but laugh while reviewing the scene where the defense line collapsed.
Liverpool’s quarterfinals in the European Champions League are literally hopeless. It is a difficult challenge that can only be achieved by playing the greatest game in the history of the European Champions League. Even the second leg is an away, not Anfield. You have to win by 4 goals to advance to the quarterfinals. Liverpool have lost four of their last five meetings with Real Madrid. Real Madrid have not lost to Liverpool recently. They beat Liverpool 3-1 in the Champions League final in 2018, beat Liverpool 3-1 in the quarterfinals of the 2020-2021 season, and won 1-0 in the final last season.
