Nov, 26th 2020 – Liverpool were on the receiving end at Anfield as Italian Side Atalanta beat the Jurgen Klopp side 2-0 in the UEFA Champions league tie. A much-changed Reds side lacked fluidity and failed to have a shot on target at Anfield on Wednesday.
Josip Ilicic and Robin Gosens struck for the Serie A side midway through the second half.
Mohamed Salah, returning to the side, had fired over with the Reds’ best chance in the first half.
The Italian outfit looked more likely to break the deadlock and did so when Ilicic poked beyond Alisson from Alejandro Gomez’s teasing cross.
The visitors doubled their lead four minutes later when an unmarked Gosens volleyed in from Hans Hateboer’s nod down.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made four substitutions in a bid to get something from the game, but the changes could not prevent the Reds from suffering their first home defeat inside 90 minutes since September 2018.
