A little bit of Pathos there may be, finally, Jürgen Klopp moved for many years in the entertainment business soccer , and this requires time to crisp statements. So the coach of Liverpool FC said three weeks ago in a television camera: "Welcome to Anfield. It's not over yet."
minutes earlier, had lost his team in Madrid against Atlético 0:1, but Klopp has already had the final the eighth match in the head; in their own stadium Anfield, this of a lot of history mixed football temple, which was filled on Wednesday night with 54’000 spectators, inside impact, in spite of the escalating Corona Situation.
And, perhaps, had guessed Klopp as that at Anfield, another game for the collective memory would take place; one that was not 90, but 120 minutes. And in these 120 minutes happened enough to make two or three football games entertaining.
As Georginio Wijnaldum scored, for example, just before the break, the 1:0 and atlético goalkeeper Jan Oblak once again showed a fabulous performance with more than a dozen power of the financial statements. Since Oblak plays in Madrid, conceded Atlético less than a hit per game. And the strength in defence was on this night, the salvation of the Spaniards.
Somehow they reached the extension, after Liverpool had hit the crossbar, and when the Englishman failed to Oblak, they shot over it, beside it and over it again. Sadio Mané tried it twice by a Bicycle kick, when needed this game in addition to the already many chances even technical pieces of art, sure to go down in history.
Oblaks gate seemed to be locked - up the 2:0 in the sixth Minute of extra time but still fell and Liverpool stand in the meantime in the quarter-finals. However, in this game, in which Liverpool would have 65% of possession, had and the could Happen a long time from your own gate remote, was not the second hit, the last: substitute Marcos Llorente after scoring three minutes after the 2:0 in the away goal for the Merengues, and just before the break, the extension to double the 25-Year-old; he had previously scored just one goal for Atlético.
In stoppage time, Alvaro Morata, the 3:2 for Atlético scored, bringing the Spaniard in the quarter - final and not the defender of the title. For the first Time since the 2012/13 season, a defending champion to fail in the Champions League before the quarter-final. Or to say it with Jürgen Klopp's words: It's over.
