The result means that Liverpool’s only chance of making it to the European elite event is via a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Klopp’s team is currently sitting sixth on the table, three points between them and fourth-placed West Ham.

The race for a top-four finish is wide open, but the German tactician was asked how confident he is that Liverpool will be in the Champions League next season “That has nothing to do with confidence. I would say I’m naturally confident but that doesn’t mean we will end up there.

“We just can read the table, we know the points, we know the situation, stuff like this and we know who we play.

“We don’t have to talk too much about it. I said now what I think about it already, yes I want and we have to and if we want that, we should better play really good football.

Liverpool were not clinical in front of goal against Real Madrid. 

“Like we did tonight but we should finish the situation off on top of that because that is very helpful as well.

“I think we are not in a bad moment at the moment, we played pretty well even when it was a late winner against Aston Villa but we played a good game against them and played really good against Arsenal.

‘So not too good against Real Madrid in the first leg but the other games were not bad. Tonight, a good game, so we just have to keep going.

“We really have to keep going, we have to keep fighting and we want to be next year in the Champions League. ‘But in the moment, we still have to pick up more points than a lot of other teams.”

Liverpool will travel to Elland Road where they will take on Leeds United on Monday, 19, April as they continue to fight for a place in the top four.
