Liverpool were ‘scared’ against Atletico de Madrid

Liverpool were “scared” in their Champions League defeat against Atletico Madrid, says Marcos Llorente. At the same time, the Reds had “millions of chances” before they were thrown out of Europe in extra time. The last walk of the Reds before lockdown the coronavirus led to the fact that they lost control of the prestigious continental crown. Atletico arrived at Anfield in search of defending a narrow advantage in one goal, set on the homeland in Spain. Liverpool turned his tie on his head: Roberto Firmino, after 94 minutes, the actions shot them 2-0 before the night. On the side of Jurgen Klopp, then the most dramatic of the collapses happened.

The drama competition

For eight minutes, before Alvaro Morata completed the goal in dying moments, Llorente twice netted for Rojiblancos. Having conquered the continent in 2019, Liverpool remained left licking its wounds for 12 months on. Llorente told reporters about his experiences in the drama competition: “They started putting us in a position to attack, and with the second goal. We knew that we had no choice but to go forward. They had millions of chances, and I think that they believed they had done enough with the goals, but with our reaction, they were scared”. Llorente snatched an invaluable goal for Atletico within three minutes after Firmino sent Anfield into raptures.

Before breaking the extra-time, he again found a goal, while Liverpool was left with a mountain to rise. Llorente, as a holding midfielder, is hardly known for his prowess in the final third of the field. While the 25-year-old striker admitted that he was in favor of Merseyside. He added: “In the first goal, I lost the ball and squeezed the goalkeeper, who gave us the shot back. In the second, when Morata gave me the ball, I looked from behind, and no one was with me. I shot, I’m not used to being in those situations! A low forced break opposed Liverpool’s high bloodlessness during the global health crisis until a decision has been made to resume the Champions League tournament.
