Atletico Madrid Kick Liverpool Out Of The Champions League With a 3:2 Goal Aggregate

Reigning Champions League holders have been crashed out of the tournament by Atletico Madrid after winning with 3-2 at Anfield.

Atletico who are now in quarter-finals headed into the second leg of this last-16 tie with a 1-0 advantage from courtesy of their win in Madrid.

At first half of the game, Georginio Wijnaldum’s first-half header sent the sides in level 1-1 on aggregate.

Jan Oblak was in superb form with save after save to deny Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, and the game went into extra-time.

Roberto Firmino put Liverpool in front four minutes into extra-time, but a big call from Diego Simeone was to prove drastic.

Simeone took off Diego Costa 55 minutes in, prompting a furious reaction from the former Chelsea striker. His replacement, however, made the difference – Marcos Llorente canceled out Firmino’s strike in the seventh minute of extra-time to put Atletico ahead on away goals following an error from Adrian.

Llorente then struck on the stroke of half-time in extra-time to leave Liverpool needing two goals to progress, but Alvaro Morata scored with seconds left to seal a 4-2 aggregate win and end Liverpool’s Champions League defense.
