Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid: Story of two goalkeepers as Liverpool crash out of Champions League

Liverpool 2-3 Atletico Madrid (agg. 2-4): A crucial error from Adrian saw ATM seize control of the tie in extra-time and never look back

Just like Marcos Llorente’s powerful long shot, another trophy slips through Liverpool’s fingers.

They went out of the Champions League to Atletico Madrid after a 3-2 defeat that for so long seemed set up for one of those storied Anfield nights, only to become the story of two goalkeepers. Jan Oblak kept everything out, Adrian let pretty much every dangerous effort in.

Alisson Becker’s injury looks to have been especially timely for Liverpool​, and may well have cost them the chance at an even more historic season than a record title win – if it actually finishes.

This was far from Adrian’s first error for the club, but it may well be the last football here in front of fans for some time, and maybe the last Champions League action for the season.
