Jurgen Klopp admitted that they deserved to lose against Real Madrid

Liverpool’s European dream hanging by a thread this time.

The Reds suffered a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the quarter-final first-leg of the crucial tie.

Two first-half goals by Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio left Liverpool with a dreadful first-half performance in Madrid.

Mo Salah managed to score an away goal early in the second half but the Reds conceded another one to Vinicius later in that half.

“First and foremost I don’t think we deserved to win tonight, we didn’t play good enough and that is my first concern,” said Klopp.

“Especially in the first half we didn’t play good enough football. We conceded the first goal, served the second on a plate [after Trent Alexander-Arnold’smistake], but that was not the real problem of the game.

“Of course conceding goals is a problem but it is not the problem. The second half we did better, we scored our goal which is the positive of the night and that’s how it is.

“Did we deserve more than the 3-1? I’m not sure.”
