Champions League: Klopp reveals why Roma scored two late goals against Liverpool



Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has spoken after his side beat AS Roma 5-2 in the Champions League semifinal first leg at Anfield on Tuesday.

The German said he is pleased with the win but lamented conceding two late goals.

Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino both netted braces, while Sadio Mane also chipped in with a goal.

However, Liverpool conceded two late goals, with Edin Dzeko and Diego Perotti stunning Klopp’s men.

Roma will be hoping to capitalise on their two away goals in the second leg next week in Rome to overcome their three-goal deficit.

Klopp told BT Sports, “Long term perfect performance for pretty much 80 minutes or so.

“We made defensively one mistake. Penalty is not a penalty but that is the situation and now it is 5-2.

“Of course we would have been more happy with 5-0 or 5-1 but 5-2 is a fantastic result. We go there and try again.

“We had all these runs behind, it changed the game completely and they couldn’t cope with that. We scored these goals and could have scored more.

“That is all positive, at this moment it doesn’t feel all positive because they scored these two goals but tomorrow I will see the really good part of the game.

“It is absolutely better than I thought before the game but at the moment of course a little mistake.”
