Jurgen Klopp talks about facing Real Madrid in the Champions League

Jurgen Klopp said he was avoiding re-watching last season’s Champions League final, but with Liverpool facing the side who beat them last May on Tuesday the Reds boss admitted he finally pushed himself to analyze the game despite it being “proper torture

As Klopp missed an opportunity to win the Champions League for the second time as Liverpool coach after winning the tournament in 2019, Real Madrid beat them 1-0 at the Stade de France in the final, and the German admitted that while he realizes how impressive the Spanish team is, it is hard to go back and watch the game as he prepares for a match. Tuesday wasn’t the easiest of tasks

Speaking to the media on Monday, Klopp said: “It’s different games. One of the biggest clubs in the world, certainly one of the most successful. I won this competition I don’t know how many times

He continued: Our own story, we played that final in Paris and I haven’t seen it since then until this weekend. I immediately realized now that I know why I never watched it again! But I had to, it was true torture. We played a good game and we could have won the game. But we didn’t. They scored the decisive goal and we didn’t

And he continued: You can see in the match how experienced Real Madrid is, and how distrustful they are when the other team has chances not to lose confidence for one second. They know our chance will come and they defend with legs, they push deep together, but that’s competition and that’s what you can learn from them. But that was seven to eight months ago
