Jurgen Klopp’s men are set for a trophyless season after they failed to fight-back from their three-goal deficit they suffered in Madrid last Tuesday
Football enthusiasts in Nigeria were bemused Liverpool did not score at least a goal against Real Madrid before exiting the Uefa Champions League by a 3-1 aggregate defeat.
The reigning Premier League champions welcomed Zinedine Zidane’s men to Anfield on Wednesday with the hopes of overturning their first-leg deficit but they did not do enough to convert their chances as the encounter ended in a goalless draw.
Liverpool were the more dominant side on Wednesday with 15 shots registered compared to Real Madrid’s six shots, but they were not clinical in front of goal as only four shots were on target and the Blancos had two on target.
Liverpool’s quarter-final exit dashed any hopes of winning a title this season as they will now turn their attention to securing a European ticket for next season – they are sixth in the Premier League table.
In reacting to Wednesday’s result, Nigerians faulted Liverpool team’s performance and at the same time, applauded Zidane for his tactics and his players’ contributions.
How Liverpool did not score 5 goals in that game is beyond me. Utterly!

Trophyless season for Liverpool

Liverpool finding out how hard it is to attempt a comeback when the opponent’s left-back isn’t crying in the locker room at half time.

To be very honest this liverpool team needs flogging.

Liverpool are depleted now. Klopp’s tactics & style is now mastered by most coaches. He needs to let a few senior players go & bring in new elite ones for competition and change of style next season.
If not, this season is just the beginning of our misery.

This thing Real Madrid is doing to Liverpool is the exact meaning of frustration.
If Real Madrid had actually scored goals it would have been more merciful.
Liverpool 0-0 Real Madrid(agg 1-3)#UCL

We’ve been so weak mentally and wayward and can’t convert even the easiest chances, but we can’t actually overruled Klopp as part of the culprit.. Dude have been lacking in ideas tactically and seems overwhelmed too.. Personally I doubt if klopp can qualify us for CL.. @LFC

Even a goal the two sides couldn’t score. Trophy Less season for Liverpool

#LIVRMA This game sums Liverpool’s season. Ain’t it? Hot at times…Cold at times… lackluster most times…..and absolutely poor finishing

Liverpool x Dortmund might not even make it to the UCL next season

Thank you @LFC.

No doubt Madrid already did their job well in the first leg but Liverpool were obviously unlucky tonight. They dominated the game but missed too many scoring chances…too many, and in football “almost” is never enough! #LIVREAL

I hope Liverpool fans don’t think their problem is because they are missing Van Dijk. The chemistry of the front 3 is so bad and you can see there’s no longer fun in their game play. It was evident at the tail end of last season that something was going on up front.

Nacho and Militao put in an impressive performance this past week.
Liverpool, Barcelona, Liverpool within 7 days.

I can’t believe Liverpool is not in contention for securing any of the two.

Also, nice tactical display by the head coach Zizou. He deserves a lot of credit.
