The venues could not sustain the initial advantage of two goals and finished goleados home against a group 'merengue' that ratified his condition of eternal favourite with a traced back incredible. Éder Militao, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr. They turned into a night in which the '20' was the 'MVP' of the party.

The Brazilian loaded to the team in his shoulders after a horrible beginning for the ones of Carlo Ancelotti. Darwin Núñez madrugó to the visitors with a golazo of swearword in the minute 4 and Mohamed Salah expanded the difference in the 14' taking advantage of a bad control of Thiabut Courtois, the one who gave the balloon to the Egyptian of absurd form for desatar the madness in Merseyside. However, 'Vini' appeared with his particular disequilibrium to shatter the plans of Jurgen Klopp.

Taking advantage of the defensive fragility 'network', the one of Rio de Janeiro armed a wall with Benzema to take out a latigazo crossed in the 21' and give back to the party to a Madrid to the edge of the 'KO'. It had arrived in both areas in the following minutes, but recently in the 36' a new 'sung', this time of Alisson Becker, allowed to Vinicius equalise the party almost by inertia, since his compatriot crashed in his legs an attempt of pass to Joe Gómez.

In the middle of the chaos, the ones of Carlo Ancelotti attained resurgir, as so many times did it the past season. You grieve reiniciado the commitment in the complement, another error of the Liverpool in the mark, this time with all the unemployed defence in a free shot of Modric, allowed to Militao complete the traced back of head in the 47'.

The second, a golazo to finalise a contragolpe perfect that armed Modric with a big theft and completed the '9' leaving irrigated to the Brazilian goalkeeper, previous assistance of 'Vini'.

Before the 2-4 arrived the controversy with a hand penalti of Dani Carvajal no sanctioned. The side had the separate arm of his body when a centre of Robertson hit in his left forearm, but neither the main judge neither the VAR signalled absolutely at all. By the contrary, the attention carried it to him a slight manotazo of Darwin Núñez to Antonio Rüdiger that finished with a verbal warning to the Uruguayan. Previously, the forward had demanded a clear pushed of the '2' in the area that neither was warned neither revised. At the end, the Madrid imposed with authority and left practically resolved the classification to quarter-finals. For the Liverpool follows the bad series in front of a Real to the that do not defeat from 2009.
