What to say? Are we cursed? It feels like it.. We were the better side, we had the easier chances, they were ruthless, we fluffed our lines..

Disappointed Klopp appears to have gone safety first rather than stick with what has worked i.e. not Gini and Trent (who is so so important to our team).

Just basically summed up with fuck off, I just feel deflated after that.

I thought we played well.

We dominated the ball, had plenty of possession, more chances. I feel like Barcelona picked our pockets.

Milners miss was the key, hes got to score from there, Mane could have scored, Salah could have scored.

Even though we lost 3-0 im happy with that performance.

How does the better side lose 3-0?

A rare lapse from our best player, a spawny second goal and a moment of Messi magic. Oh, and lots of wasteful finishing from us. And the ref not booking their players.

Still, let’s not forget that Barcelona threw away a three-goal first leg lead against Roma last year.

We are a better side than Roma.

We can still win this.

We are Liverpool.

We played really well and somehow (see:Messi) found ourselves 3-0 down with two wonderful goals and one jammy as fuck goal.

Not getting the away goal really hurts and the second leg is going to be nigh on impossible but fuck it we may as well go all guns blazing - get 2-0 up by half time and see where it takes us.

Wasteful and unlucky. Gomez starting at right back took away our overlapping threat on that side on a night when we had the ball and pinned them back. Gini starting in the middle blunted the attack. Very Pep-esque by Klopp tonight.

Going to be very tough to turn this around.

If you can not score you can not win!
Agression infront of goal the difference!
I can not see us coming back from that!

Played right into their hands unfortunately. Midfield was an absolute joke. Probably the last we'll see of Gomez at RB too.

Still possible, but got to take out chances at Anfield.

They are not that great. 3-0 was a very unfair reflection of the game, and had we scored one of our chances in the 2nd half, I would have us as favourites to go through, but overturning 3-0 is gonna be a tough ask next Tuesday

Tired of the bitching about Klopp.
We dominated minutes 45-75 or so. Milner finds the back of the net, Salah doesn’t strike the post and it is all good.
Why change when we were dominating Barca at the Camp Nou? Risk breaking your momentum with a sub? Let it run and hope we find the breakthrough.
Only question I have regards Jomez in over TAA

We played very solid, but they got Messi - easy as that.
We've lost but I think we played with self-confidence and with a little luck we could destroyed them.
But they cheated us - that's the game. Sometimes it happened.
