​Liverpool boss Klopp says Salah usually scores Real Madrid chances 'with closed eyes'

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits his star forwards, including Mohamed Salah, typically bury the sort of chances they missed against Real Madrid.

The Reds put up a spirited fight in the second leg of their quarter final, as they were 3-1 down from the first leg in Madrid.

However, they did not take any of the chances that fell their way, and drew the game 0-0 to crash out of the competition.

Klopp told BT Sport: "That's how it is. We know how many times Mo Salah would finish these type of things; with closed eyes. But in this moment, not.

"There were a lot of situations. Second half, after 60 minutes, they took a bit of control. They had more of the ball.

"We made the changes and timing maybe wasn't right.

"We didn't come through that well. We lost a bit of rhythm. Tried a bit too hard.

"Tonight it was absolutely OK but we are out anyway."
