Liverpool 0-0 Real Madrid: Player ratings as stalemate dumps Reds out

Liverpool’s poor finishing cost them as they were unable to find a way past Real Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday night and were dumped out of the Champions League 3-1 on aggregate.

The Reds flew out of the blocks and Thibaut Courtois twice had to rescue his side with good saves from Mohamed Salah and James Milner, though they were fired a warning shot shortly after as Karim Benzema struck the post.

The Reds began to get a grip on the game as the clock ticked towards half-time and Salah was yet again culpable of missing a gilt-edged chance before Georginio Wijnaldum missed an even better one – it was already beginning to look like one of those nights for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Liverpool continued to push for an opener but they spurned chance after chance and were eventually forced to admit defeat as they bowed out at the last eight stage.

That’s the match highlights out of the way, now to those Liverpool and Real Madrid player ratings…
