Liverpool 0 Real Madrid 0; Liverpool knocked out as Anfield game ends in goalless draw
2020-21 UEFA Champions League quarter finals second leg – Wednesday, April 14, 2021
Liverpool 0 Real Madrid 0 – Real Madrid win 3-1 on aggregate
Liverpool’s Champions League campaign came to an end when they played out a goalless draw at Anfield against a visiting Real Madrid side in the second leg of the quarter finals of the 2020-21 Champions League.
Zidane’s Real Madrid arriving at Anfield on the back of a 3-1 lead will be thankful for the glorious opportunities their opponents missed to score in the first period.
Salah was the focal point of some action again on 11 minutes when he teed up a ball into the path of James Milner who let fly from 25 yards as he made Courtois dive full-length to parry his effort away.
Fortunately for the Reds the ball rebounded off the foot of the post as serious danger was averted. Liverpool continued playing with some intensity, creating two more golden opportunities before the interval.
The first came when Salah shot over from inside the penalty area after being picked out by Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum lashed a cut back from Trent Alexander-Arnold over the crossbar as Liverpool ended the first period looking the much better side.
Liverpool continued where they left off in the first half as Roberto Firmino forced Courtois to make a chest save from a tight angled shot from close range and the Brazilian followed that effort up by powering a drive just over the crossbar moments later.
Liverpool starting XI: Alisson (goal), Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Robertson, Fabinho, Milner, Wijnaldum, Mane, Firmino, Salah.
Subs: Jota, Thiago, Shaqiri, Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois (goal), Valverde, Militao, Nacho, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Vinicius Jr, Benzema
Subs: Odriazola, Rodrygo, Isco.
Man of the match: Casemiro.
