Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid (2-3 AET) | UEFA Champions League highlights

بواسطة uness kircha على March 11, 2020
For the majority of this contest, there was only one team in it. What kept the Spaniards alive was one of the finest goalkeeping displays Anfield has witnessed from a visitor in many a year.

Liverpool were left to reflect on the absence of their world-class shot-stopper in Alisson Becker as Oblak proved the value of a top-drawer man between the posts.

The Reds know what a high quality goalkeeper is worth. When they took the plunge on Alisson for £65m in 2018, it represented a shift in thinking about the position.

The benefits of Alisson's arrival have been felt ten-fold since, but on this night, the Reds were forced to make do with their understudy in Adrian while Atletico's star-of-the-night delivered a virtuoso display down the other end.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane all troubled Oblak before Gini Wijnaldum's big moment in the first period.

It seemed a clear tactic from the hosts to try their luck from crosses and allow the spring-heeled Dutchman to ghost into the area at every opportunity. Wijnaldum rose highest towards the end of a pulsating first period to drag his team back into the tie.

Liverpool flew out the traps as the rain continued to hammer it down and Mane almost fired the Reds into a lead from Oxlade-Chamberlain's cute ball to the back post. The Senegal star found Oblak in inspired form once more though.
