Liverpool was eliminated from the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday after Atletico Madrid claimed a 3-2 victory after extra time in the second leg of their last-16 tie to win 4-2 on aggregate.

Facing a 1-0 deficit from the first leg, the Reds dominated for the vast majority of the 120 minutes at Anfield and appeared to be heading to the quarter finals when Roberto Firmino struck four minutes into extra-time.

The No. 9’s close-range finish added to Georginio Wijnaldum’s fine header, which leveled the series in the 43rd minute.

However, a pair of long-range Marcos Llorente goals before the interval in the added 30 minutes gave Atletico an unassailable advantage that was added to in stoppage time of extra-time by Alvaro Morata.

Jurgen Klopp’s side’s defense of the European Cup therefore comes to an end.
