Liverpool arrived Madrid confident and bold by a recent improvement in form and a new found strength and solidarity within themselves,Klopp said, “built for these games”, ready to go against the team their champions league dreams in the 2018 final.
The reds clearly were not the better side on the pitch as they struggled to make magic happen as they were both outclassed and outshined by their rivals Real Madrid.
Liverpool were not good enough in possession, suffering from their errors, both individual and collective. His team selection did not give him the desired results he hoped for,. Substituting Naby Keita, a surprise starter in midfield in the 42 minutes.
