Liverpool are being downgraded to Europa League whilst FC Basel are advancing to the next stage of the Champions League. Perhaps it wasn’t the best game for Liverpool. Then again…which games are?
Frei gave Basel the lead in the 25th minute. Liverpool had never beaten Basel in a European competition and it was beginning to appear evident.
By the second half, Liverpool pursued a more aggressive approach to the match. From feet kicking legs instead of the ball and a red card Markovic!What else could go wrong for them?
A new sense of hope arrived as Gerrard scored the equaliser in the 81st minute! However, the 10-men couldn’t find another goal to see them through. How pitiful.
Out of six games in group B, Liverpool only managed to win one! Perhaps they just weren’t ready for the grand Champions League. Maybe now they can focus more on achieving wins in the Premier League. Right now, they need all the time and help they can get!
