While Klopp concedes super-sub Gareth Bale made the difference, he insisted there wasn't much between the two teams.
He reasoned: "It was a football game. We buy players, we sell players, we do exactly the same like Real Madrid, only maybe a little bit different opportunities but I'm fine with our opportunities.
"I really think – and it's not a problem because nobody talks about it anymore – but if things would have been not that bad for us tonight we could have won the game. That's how it is. We were there, we were here, we did the things we are good in and, if they all stay on the pitch, we don't make these kinds of mistakes – all if – then we can win the game. But now, things went how they went and we have to accept that, that's all."
