This was essentially a very good match of attack vs defence, with Liverpool doing everything they could to breach Real’s defence. Had there been a full house at Anfield, it might have been a different story. But Real managed the game brilliantly and deserved to go through to the semi-finals.

Liverpool didn’t play badly, but their finishing was woeful. On so many occasions a teasing cross drifted over a player’s head, or a Real defender blocked a shot.

“You always need the key moments,” Jurgen Klopp said after the match. “We didn’t lose the tie tonight, we lost in Madrid. It was uncomfortable for Madrid. We were good, aggressive, had chances.

“We didn’t score and then the experience of Real Madrid played the tie down. That is ourselves this year with the finishing.”

Man of the match: Casemiro (Real Madrid)
