Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid analysis: How much blame does Adrian deserve? | UEFA Champions League

ESPN FC’s Steve Nicol, Alejandro Moreno and Frank Leboeuf break down Atletico Madrid’s 3-2 comeback win that knocked Liverpool out of the UEFA Champions League. Nicol puts the blame squarely on goalkeeper Adrian whose error led to a goal from Atletico Madrid’s Marcos Llorente. Moreno adds that Adrian’s lack of confidence in net was palpable and agrees the Reds sorely missed injured goalkeeper Alisson.

  • Liverpool is trash. White people really don't like watching browns play their sport better than them. They just can't say it.

  • So now for the English site it’s all on the goal keeper 🤔 what about the other players who missed chances after another?

  • Yes it was mostly the goalies fault. He looked very shaky, and
    Klopp should have fortified the defense instead of pressing forward and exposing the defense.

  • Only the sore losers blame the goalkeeper for one single mistake. If liverpool was good enough, they would have scored another goal after and win it 3-1!

  • It not the goalkeeper fault because other player had chance of score and la liga defenders is better than liverpool defender

  • I wouldn’t blame Adrian tbh, he conceded three goals but he only ever made a mistake in one of them, I don’t think Alison could’ve saved Morata’s goal either, it’s really the entire team’s fault for not being “on point”

  • ALL of the blame!

  • LFC did everything they could. There is no need to blame anybody. Atleti is a better team and they have a better coach. That is why they won. That is all. As simple as that!..

  • " you will never walk along " it's all adrains fault 😂😂

  • When Oblak did the same mistake in first leg (26th minute), why did Liverpool not converted that into goal? It is wrong to portray that Adrian is the sole reason for the loss. Liverpool goal conversion rate was poor throughout the legs.

  • Of the 217 minutes (122 '+ 95') the two legs lasted Atleti was classified in 159 ', tied for 55' and only 3 'with the tie lost. Perhaps Simeone work should be recognized.

  • Adrian lost it. That's it. Liverpool played incredibly. They missed some chances but scored as many as they needed until Adrian. Simple as that.

  • If you look at llorente's 2 goals you'd see that all liverpool's defense are just watching him take the shot,it's Adrian's fault that his defenders are afraid of direct contact

  • Being a goalkeeper is the toughest job in football. When your forwards miss a thousand chances, it is alright but when a goalkeeper gives the ball to the opponent, he drowns the whole team. Liverpool just fell on their face. Is it so difficult to accept that? Accept that you were unable to break Atleti's defense. Accept that your "best" front three struggled in front of that wall and most importantly, accept that you lost at Anfield and in front of your fans. Atletico only brought the Liverpool players and their fans back to the land from the clouds.

    "Welcome to Anfield."

  • Adrian defo lost them that game. Once he gave that ball away and they scored, they had to chase the game. I knew they were finished after that
