jurgen kloppGerman technician Liverpool, analyzed the game in which his team fell 2-5 against Real Madrid at Anfield, after winning the match 2-0 in the first 14 minutes, a result that leaves the tie for the English in the round of UEFA Champions League Round of 16.
Klopp remarked for the chain BT Sportt after the match:
The beginning was excellent. It was exactly us, the way we wanted to play and we were giving them problems all over the field, we read the game well, it was a super intense start and we were up 2-0.
The German technician thought “good all the first time” despite losing the advantage and regretted that they became “a little more passive, quite up the field”.
We no longer pressed when we had to and if you become passive against this team, they punish you.
In this sense, Klopp believes that his defense on Eder Militao’s goal “It was not acceptable” and assured that being at a disadvantage did not help them “against a team that is excellent on the counterattack”.
We ended up playing their game and we couldn’t get hooked on the game because they had more confidence. It was a strange match but we lost 5-2 and there is a lot to take away from him.
The second leg will be March, 15th in it Santiago Bernabeu Stadiumwhere the current champion of the continental tournament has everything in his favor to advance to Quarter finals.
