“I believe Carlo believes the match is done, and I agree right now, but in three weeks…”
Although Jurgen Klopp feels his optimism in overcoming a three-goal deficit against Real Madrid will return, he will be aware that considerable changes will be required after Tuesday’s 5-2 loss at Anfield. Liverpool has undoubtedly mounted fairytale comebacks before.
Liverpool has to work extremely hard to advance to the quarterfinals of the Champions League this year after suffering their worst home defeat in Europe.
On March 15, Klopp remarked of the second leg against the holders in Madrid, “We will go there and play a football game.”
“That will be extremely difficult. We must make sure we take something away from this game.”
Jordan Henderson, the captain of Liverpool, believed Carlo Ancelotti’s team suffered from mistakes that cost them the game.
We committed far too many errors around the goals, he continued. “Teams like Madrid penalize you when you commit too many errors.”
