UCL: We didn’t deserve to win, Klopp says after Madrid defeat



Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has revealed that his team didn’t deserve to win against Real Madrid after their 3-1 loss in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday night.

Mohammed Salah’s strike was not enough for the Reds who were outclassed by Madrid.

Vinicius Junior and Asensio gave the Spaniards a two-goal lead ahead of the second leg, leaving Klopp’s men on the brink of an exit from the competition.

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

“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’s mistake], 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.”
