Liverpool's Robertson not a fan of Atletico Madrid theatrics




 

Liverpool fullback Andy Robertson was not impressed with Atletico Madrid's display as his side fell 1-0 in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League's Round of 16 tie on Tuesday.

The Reds fell behind on a fourth-minute Saul Niguez goal and couldn't get a shot on target despite 73 percent possession in Spain.

Atleti executed its plan to near-perfection, slowing restarts and taking advantage of counterattacking opportunities to assuage the constant pressure of Liverpool.

At times it was reminiscent of early-century Italian national team play, and both neutrals and Liverpool knew what they were in for once Atleti took the lead.

Given the performance and the reputation, you'd still fancy the Reds to "put it right" at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp thinks Atleti will feel plenty of pressure at Anfield, and he will certainly feel the officiating will be more to his liking.
