Marcos Llorente: Atletico Madrid had Liverpool FREAKING OUT

Atletico Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente says they had Liverpool "freaking out" during their Champions League win.

After dominating much of their second leg at Anfield, the Reds were stunned in extra-time by Atletico Madrid.

Llorente told Marca: "They started to put us in a position to attack and with the second goal we knew we had no choice but to go forward.

"They had millions of chances and I think they saw each other deep inside with the goals, but with our reaction they freaked out."

Recalling his two goals on the night, he said: "On the first goal I lost the ball and squeezed the goalkeeper, who gave me the ball.

"In the second, when Morata gave me the ball I looked behind and nobody came. I played it, I'm not used to being in those situations."
