The game started with nothing more than an electric atmosphere as expected at Anfield.

Liverpool nearly conceded straight away from kick off with a through ball from Felix to Costa who missed his shot.

Salah had the first shot for Liverpool which went sailing over the crossbar in the 10th minute.

Chamberlain had the second shot and the first on target for the home side, which Oblak successfully palms away out of danger.

“We are the champions, champions of Europe.” chant the Liverpool fans in hope to motivate their side.

Salah picked up the ball at the edge of the area and squares it to Mane who had plenty of time to put it away but hit it straight at the keeper.

Best chance of the game so far.

Chamberlain was in plenty of space at the edge of the area but puts his shot wide, Liverpool controlling the game but cannot seem to score.

Goal for Wijnaldum in the 44th minute who headed it into the back of the net from a cross from central midfielder, Chamberlain.

The number 15 was easily the star man in that first half with him covering every area on the pitch.

Half time finishes 1-0 to the home side.

Mane nearly put the reds 2-0 up but Oblak was superb once again.

60th minute and Joao Felix had Atletico’s best shot in the second half which forced a double save from Adrian.

Salah shot and deflected off a defender for Robertson to head it onto the bar, very close to giving the reds a lead on aggregate.

Robertson had a chance at the edge of the box in the 81st minute but he could not keep control of the ball and sliced it over the bar.

Mane’s overhead kick got everybody out their seats but again, over the bar.

Another overhead kick from Mane in the 88th minute but could not keep the ball down and Atletico are safe again.

A late goal from the away side but Liverpool played the perfect offside line which disallowed the goal.

End of the 90 minutes.

Wijnaldum to Firmino early on in the first half of extra time was close to putting Liverpool ahead.

Alexander-Arnold whips the ball in for the Brazilian number nine who then flicks it onto the post and finishes his rebound. 2-1 aggregate.

Liverpool was not ahead for long and substitute, Marcos Llorente, gets a goal back for the Madrid side. 2-2 aggregate.

Drama in extra time as Atletico’s Llorente scored a brilliant solo goal to get his second goal of the match.

Liverpool have been extremely unlucky in the first half of extra time but could not keep the travelling team out.

The famous Anfield fans are very loud at the end of the first half of extra time to get Klopp’s side motivated.

Divock Origi and Fabinho both come at the start of the second half.

Nothing much in the second half until Alvaro Morata was through on goal and made it 4-2 on aggregate.

Game over and Liverpool are out of the Champions League, extremely unlucky and a brilliant performance from both.

Diego Simeone’s side put in an unbelievable performance both home and away.

Next stop for Liverpool, claiming their first ever Premier League title.
