Adrian Credits Fellow Goalkeeper Oblak For Inspiring Atletico Madrid To Beat Liverpool


Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian thinks Atletico Madrid were the better side in their Champions League clash, and credits opposite number Jan Oblak for inspiring the Liga side to victory.

The Reds were the reigning champions heading into their round of 16 tie against Atletico earlier this year, but lost 1-0 in Madrid before being beaten 3-2 after extra time at Anfield in the second leg to crash out of the competition at the first knockout stage.

Adrian, who has served as back-up to Alisson this season but played against Atletico in the second leg, admits that Diego Simeone’s side were better over the course of the tie and deserved to progress in a competition that has since been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Spanish keeper reserved special praise for Atletico No.1 Oblak, who made a series of brilliant saves in the second leg to put Atletico in the position where they could score three goals in extra time and reach the quarter-finals.

He told DAZN:

“The first days you eat away at yourself, you don’t accept that was the last game, you get that bad taste in your mouth, quite sour from having lost a tie. When it seems that we have it pretty well on track at home, a game where we had twenty-odd shots on goal, but we lose.

“The man of the match was definitely Oblak and, in the end, Atletico played their game, they beat us in both games and they should have progressed because they deserved it.”
