The defeat of Atletico Madrid made Liverpool for the first time in three seasons, failing to qualify for the eighth round of the Champions League, and the Red Brigade lost the prize money of over 30 million pounds.
Liverpool lost more than 30 million pounds after losing Atletico
Coach Juergen Klopp had all 10 knockout matches before as the captain of Liverpool and the reward was the finalists in the 2017/18 Champions League final, before winning the championship a year later, in the 2018/2019 season.
With the 2018/19 championship, Liverpool pocketed the prize money of up to £ 54.7 million. Of this amount, up to 31.1 million pounds were collected by Klopp’s teachers at the knockout stage, when they overcame Bayern Munich, Porto and Barcelona on their way to Madrid to attend the final.
Liverpool has been going through the most difficult period of this season when they were defeated by Atletico Madrid after both matches in the 1/8 Champions League round and officially became the former king. Previously, they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Chelsea and ended the unbeaten match in the English Premier League because the team in the red light group was Watford.
The defeat at Watford did not affect too much of Liverpool‘s ability to win the championship. Losing to Chelsea can cost Liverpool a small bonus, but getting out of the Champions League early takes them away. First, Liverpool became the former king of the tournament and then lost the prize money of no less than 30 million pounds.
Liverpool received countless bad statistics after the defeat
Losing 0-1 in the first leg on the opponent’s field, Liverpool was full of determination to make a comeback in the second leg when playing at home. Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino scored 2 goals for the Red Brigade but that was not enough when Liverpool had to receive 3 goals in 2 extra innings. To lose with a total score of 2-4 after 2 matches, the Red Brigade bitterly became the former king in the Champions League.
This is the first time Liverpool have lost a home match in European cups in six years. The last time they had to receive a sad result at Anfield was also before a team from Madrid. It was a 0-3 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League group stage of 2013/14.
In addition, Liverpool also had the first elimination in the 1/8 round of the Champions League since the 2005/06 season when they were beaten by Benfica in both matches with a score of 0-1 away and 0-2 on the field home.
The unbeaten match at Liverpool‘s Anfield field also had to stop at 42. The last time they had to experience the feeling of losing at home was a 1-2 defeat to Chelsea in the third round of the 2018/19 League Cup.
With coach Juergen Klopp, he has been eliminated in the knockout stages of the European Cup for the first time since coming to Liverpool in 2015. During this time, the Red Brigade has once reached the Europa League final with him. Twice to the Champions League final.
Another disappointing statistic. This is only the second time in history, Liverpool scored 2 goals at home in the European Cup and still could not win. The first was a 2-3 defeat against Udinese in 2012 in the Europa League.
