Real Madrid set up Chelsea reunion for Eden Hazard, after Liverpool out of Champions League
Liverpool are OUT of the Champions League as they could only manage a goalless draw at home to Real Madrid.
Having lost the first leg 3-1 in Spain, Jurgen Klopp’s side knew they needed to score at least twice to advance to the semi-finals, and they had plenty of opportunities.
Mohamed Salah should have given the Reds the lead inside two minutes but could only fire straight at Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian goalkeeper also made a brilliant save to deny James Milner from range.
Salah had another chance shortly before the break but failed to effectively dig out a decent effort. Moments later, Georginio Wijnaldum made a complete hash of a clear shot at goal.
The visitors were very hard to break down in the second half and arguably came closer than Liverpool to breaking the deadlock late on but Karim Benzema mistimed his free header.
It mattered not for Los Blancos as they got the result they needed, which could see Eden Hazard return to former club Chelsea, providing he recovers in time from his ankle injury.
