There has not been a comeback when Liverpool club continued to fall before Real Madrid stars in the second leg of the round of 16 UEFA Champions League this season that ended early this morning in Vietnam time.
To lose with a total score of 2-6 after two rounds, Liverpool had to say goodbye to the continental arena in a rather bitter way. And shared after the game, midfielder Virgil van Dijk shared: “Honestly, I think the first half was quite balanced. It’s not easy to turn the tide here but you try not to look ahead.
Liverpool never beat Real when I came here. So that’s what we’ve always wanted to do. I think we created some dangerous chances in the first half. But Real also played well especially after the halftime break. And I feel pretty frustrated.”
Besides, Virgil van Dijk also did not forget to praise the defending champion Real Madrid. The Dutchman added: “We played against a team that never wavered even when you put them under pressure. Even in the most difficult situation they still managed to stay calm.
Obviously they have players who can make the difference like Modric, Benzema. However, I think in the first half we could have scored. If it happens, maybe the outcome of today’s match will be different.”
