Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk commented on the defeat of Real Madrid (0:1) in the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League.
“I think, to be honest, the first half was pretty even. It has always been a very difficult task to come here and change everything. But you try not to look ahead, you try to win. All the time that I was at Liverpool, I never managed to beat them, although we always wanted to do something – we wanted to win. I think we created some dangerous chances in the first half. They also had a few hits from afar. The main problem was 3 goals behind after the first game.
I think you’re playing against a team that never gets excited. Even when you put pressure on them, even if they have difficult moments, they try to stay calm and obviously they have players for that. If you look at Modric, Benzema, they make a difference. Especially when they are under pressure,” said van Dijk.
