Liverpool faced Atalanta at Anfield and they lost 2 – 0. This is a surprise win for Atalanta who looks to improve their hopes of advancing to the next round of the Champions League with today’s win.
Atalanta’s most valuable player Josip Ilicic and Robin Gosens scored the two goals for Atalanta in the first half and they held on to beat Liverpool 2 – 0 at Liverpool’s home stadium.
“My only interest at the moment is that we got the thumbs-up, nobody injured, recover immediately … the boys are completely disappointed, frustrated, but really, we don’t have time for it, to be honest, just get fresh legs as quick as possible and go again,” Klopp told BT Sport.
“We had a great game tonight, we managed to play our football,” Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini told Italian TV. “We played better this time and we played quality football as well as being solid throughout.”
Having been unbeaten in their first 15 home #UCL games under Klopp, Liverpool have lost 2 of the last 3 Italian teams to win at Anfield in Champions League:
Roma, Napoli, Inter, Juventus
