Liverpool lost for only the third time in all competitions this season after going down 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League last 16 first-leg on Tuesday in Madrid.

Sadio Mane, who got the winner from the bench against Norwich City on Saturday, returned alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah up front.

The game’s only goal arrived on four minutes through Saul Niguez who made the most of a defensive error from a corner.

The defending champions were unable to register a shot on target and couldn’t force a draw, which will now see them needing a win at Anfield in three weeks.
