Liverpool skipper for the night Gini Wijnaldum admits they paid for their errors in loss at Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in the first-leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.
Afterwards, Wijnaldum said: “It was difficult. We played against a good side.
“The way we did in the first half wasn’t good. We lost it quickly with simple passes. Two moments of not concentrating enough and they scored. We weren’t sharp enough.
“We said in the second half we have to play our football and not lose the ball too easily and concentrate more. They were a few times dangerous with long balls. We played our own game [at times after the break] and that’s why we scored. Unfortunately, they scored and that makes it more difficult.
“The goal gave us confidence. We hoped for a better result. Now we have to give everything in the second leg.”
