Champions Liverpool bowed out of the Champions after a 3-2 after extra defeat to Atletico Madrid at Anfield. Georginio Wijnaldum's goal in normal time saw the Reds win 1-0 in normal time but, despite Firmino's goal doubling their lead in extra time, two howlers from stand in keeper Adrian allowed replacements Marcos Llorente(2) and Alvaro Morata score to send the blessed Spaniards through, who had their goalkeeper Jan Oblak to thank.
