4 chances were achieved for the Liverpool team during the whole match, but none of this opportunity was on the opponent’s goal, which was determined to win the match to revive its hopes of qualifying for the knockout rounds of the tournament.
It seems that Klopp, out of the severity of his dissatisfaction, decided to substitute four of his players at once, but even these did not succeed in changing the course of play, the match and the outcome.
The match was dull and boring, except perhaps for the two goals of Atalanta, which were achieved after they took advantage of two errors committed by the Reds, and the Italian team deserved to win the match in the end.
The British newspaper Mirror indicated that Klopp was seen shouting angrily at his players from the touchline after his team received the second goal.
It seemed that despair was gripping him as he yelled at his players, asking them to play football, according to the newspaper.
BT Sport cameras caught the coach shouting, and he heard German fans shouting: “Please start playing football.”
Josip Ilicic opened the scoring for Atalanta an hour later, before Robin Gossens doubled his team’s lead after just 4 minutes with a close shot from Allison.
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp re-arranged his cards and pushed Roberto Firmino, Fabinho, Diogo Jota and Andy Robertson from the bench, but the team quickly conceded a second goal after Josens followed up on Hans Hattebor’s pass in the 63rd minute.
Despite the defeat, Liverpool remained the top of the group with 9 points, two points behind Atalanta, who are third on goal difference behind Ajax Amsterdam.
