Adrian, double of former Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente and the finishing blow of Alvaro Morata.

Record sad rain, nightmare 14 years reappear
A series of sad historical milestones called the names of teachers and students Jurgen Klopp after last night’s nightmare at Anfield’s home ground. For the first time in 12 years in the second leg of the Cup C1 knockout round, Liverpool has to play extra time and lose to the opponent, after being knocked out by Chelsea in the same way in the semi-final of this tournament in April 2008 at Stamford Bridge.
