Liverpool certainly lacked enthusiasm and effort throughout the match, despite the fact that Real Madrid did not humiliate them in the second leg and they lost by a fair one goal margin. Liverpool was anticipated to start off strong and attempt to reduce the 5-2 first-leg deficit. Instead, Liverpool adopted a cautious stance throughout the game and hardly produced any clear-cut opportunities.
Experienced players like James Milner, Fabinho, and Mohamed Salah were supposed to set an example, but their own performances were very lacklustre. Alisson has since said that he gave it his all on the field and left the match with his head held high. He was without a doubt the finest player on the field and made a series of incredible saves to keep Real Madrid from scoring.
