Jurgen Klopp has admitted Liverpool’s finishing must improve after they were knocked out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage following a 0-0 draw with Real Madrid on Wednesday.

The Reds were trailing 3-1 from the first leg, and despite creating a number of clear-cut opportunities were unable to get back in the tie in a frustrating stalemate at Anfield.

Klopp appeared satisfied with his side’s performance, but reflected on the similarities with some of the “ridiculous” home matches which Liverpool have dominated but failed to win in the Premier League this season.

Speaking at full-time, Klopp told reporters: “We didn’t lose the game tonight, we lost it in Madrid that is clear. The level of performance today was good enough and had we gone 1-0 up it would have been a different game.

“It was uncomfortable for Madrid, we were good, we were aggressive, we played some really good stuff, had massive chances in the beginning of the game.

“If we take one of them, it opens up. They had already struggles, it would have increased that. But if and when isn’t interesting because we didn’t score and then with the experience of Real Madrid they slowed it down.

“We’ve had ridiculous games here where we should have won, not tonight, but in the Premier League, where we just didn’t finish.

“Many times Mo Salah would finish this type of thing. We had so many situations and we could have created more because the football we played was better.”

Liverpool must now turn their attentions towards securing qualification for next season’s Champions League.

They currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League, but are only three points off the top four.

And they are next in action on Monday when they travel to take on Leeds before hosting Newcastle the following Saturday.
