Liverpool and Real Madrid faced each other again almost one week after the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. With a comfortable 3-1 advantage claimed in Madrid, the Merengues travelled to England as favorites to book a semi-final ticket.
It was expected, though, that it wouldn't be an easy night for Zinedine Zidane's boys. Like it happened years ago, many soccer fans were thrilled to see how Liverpool would react at home, hoping that they could pull off another miraculous comeback.
However, the game turned out to be quite boring, with no exciting actions throughout the 90 minutes and the hosts' performance was below expectations. Those fans who watched the match probably felt disappointed, but reacted to it with funny memes and reactions on social media.
Poor performance by Liverpool sees Real Madrid advance comfortably
No matter what the result in the first leg is, anytime that the Reds host the rematch at Anfield, you can't rule out a comeback from them. They proved to be capable of turning things around several times, even in the worst scenarios.
But Jurgen Klopp's team struggled tonight. Liverpool needed to score at least two goals, but they weren't even close to net one. Los Blancos managed to hold onto their advantage and got through the next round. As the game lacked entertaining actions and the English side had a poor display, fans took to the Internet to share their disappointment.
Well, Liverpool didn't accomplish the desired comeback, and Real Madrid advanced to the semifinals after an uneventful secong leg in Anfield. The Merengues are close to a new European trophy under Zidane's guidance once again, and they knocked out another strong side from the region who missed the opportunity to turn things around.
