Everyone Laughs At Liverpool As They Bottle A Three-Goal Lead In Sevilla

Everyone Laughs At Liverpool As They Bottle A Three-Goal Lead In Sevilla

Liverpool have somehow contrived to blow a three-goal lead in Seville. Jurgen Klopp's Reds knew that a win at the Sanchez Pijuan would see them top Group E, and they were in an ideal position to do so with a breathtaking first-half against oddly anemic hosts. The second half was entirely difference, as Sevilla discovered their muscle memory from the 2016 Europa League final, and began attacking Alberto Moreno at left-back.

Moreno showed trademark character in immediately wilting, and before being hooked on the hour mark he was responsible for chucking away two goals. The first, he gave away a foul and was then beaten at the near post for a header, and for the second he was even worse: miscontrolling a simple Coutinho pass, and then hacking down Ben Yedder as he tried to regain control.

Liverpool steadied the ship somewhat with the introduction of James Milner and Emre Can, but Liverpool fans' lingering horror that they were hovering over the self-destruct button persisted. And then, they jammed it: hopelessly failing to defend a corner, with Guido Pizarro hooking home unmarked from the penalty spot.

Here's some of the reaction.
