The Premier League giants Liverpool, who won the runner-up in the Champions League last season, unfortunately lost 1-4 away to the Serie A giants Napoli in the 2022/23 Champions League group stage, and now Liverpool has also created another embarrassing record.
In the game against Napoli, Liverpool trailed 0-3 in the first half, and this was the Red Army’s biggest first-half defeat in the Champions League in nearly eight years. The last time they were 3-0 down in the first half of the Champions League was back on October 24, 2014, when Liverpool faced Real Madrid and fell 3-0 in the first half, also losing to Real Madrid by the same score. .
However, in the final against AC Milan on May 25, 2005, Liverpool were also led by 3 goals in the first half, and then successfully turned the score into 3 to 3, and finally reversed the opponent through a penalty shootout.
Klopp believes the squad needs a complete overhaul
When the game reached the 47th minute, Zelinski scored again, leaving Liverpool behind 0-4. It was also the first time in the history of the reformed Champions League that Liverpool fell behind the opponent 0-4. If you add the Champions League before the restructuring, Liverpool has conceded more than 4 goals for the second time. The last time was in 1966, when they lost to Ajax 5-1 away.
On the other hand, Liverpool coach Klopp admitted in an interview after the game that the team must completely transform itself and reflect. He also thinks the team doesn’t work as a team, but there’s no need to point fingers at each other.
When asked if he would be sacked by the club with Tuchel, Klopp said he was not worried because the Liverpool boss would prefer him to solve the current problem rather than switch to another Coach to solve.
