The European champion falls into the trap of ‘El Cholo’ Simeone

A frustrating evening for Liverpool as they are beaten by Atletico Madrid, who will take a one-goal advantage to Anfield in three weeks

Liverpool lost against Atletico Madrid this Tuesday, by 0-1, in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League.

The reds entered the game practically losing, with Saul scoring to colchoneros in the 4th minute, a result that remained until the final whistle.

The formation led by Jurgen Klopp came to know the taste of defeat exactly two months later. The last defeat was against Aston Villa (0-5), where Liverpool played with the club’s reserves and ended up being eliminated from EFL Cup.

After thew match, Andrew Robertson said “The corner just ricocheted, it was tight but onside. We gave them the best possible start and that gets the fans behind them and then they start falling over and getting under the skin a bit. We put in a decent performance and we know we can be better. We’ve got a second leg to put it right. They celebrated as if they won the tie after the game. They are coming to Anfield and we know our fans will be there.”

The second game is scheduled for March 11th at Anfield Road.
