Revealed: The unwanted record Liverpool set during Real Madrid hammering

Liverpool were well and truly taken to school by Real Madrid on Tuesday evening.


Liverpool and Real Madrid went head-to-head on Tuesday evening in the first of two Champions League last-16 ties.

The Reds have a dismal record against Real Madrid in the Champions League, especially under Jurgen Klopp, who has lost two Champions League finals to Los Blancos.

However, on Tuesday, Liverpool actually took a 2-0 lead early in the tie. A Darwin Nunez flick and a Mohamed Salah tap-in saw the home outfit 2-0 up after 14 minutes.

From there, though, things quickly went south for Klopp and co. Vinicius Jr. netted a wonderful goal 21 minutes in before adding a second 15 minutes later thanks to an Alisson error.

The two European powerhouses went in level at the break, but the second half belonged to Real Madrid.

Eder Militao put Carlo Ancelotti’s men in front two minutes into the second 45. Karim Benzema then netted Real’s 4th of the night after 55 minutes before adding a second of his own with 67 minutes on the clock.

After conceding 5 to the current Champions League holders, Liverpool have set a rather unwanted record.

As per Opta, Liverpool have conceded five goals in a home European match for the first time ever.
