Liverpool’s defence of their Champions League gets off to a rocky start after Saul Niguez’s early strike put the Spanish side in the lead going into the second leg of their last-16 tie at Anfield.
It was a vintage Atletico performance which saw them defend with their low block, hassle the opposition and hope to knick a goal to protect.
The Reds did have their chances tho, Mohamed Salah headed wide, and Jordan Henderson, whose hooked shot just missed Jan Oblak’s far post. However, Liverpool failed to register a single shot on target
To the surprise of most, Klopp substituted Sadio Mane and Salah with Divock Origi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but neither made an impact.
The return leg is on Wednesday, 11 March.
