“That was a disgrace, that second half” Ex-Liverpool man Jamie Carragher slams Reds 5-2 battering vs Real Madrid in shambolic UCL night

Liverpool was left battered by Real Madrid on their trip to Anfield for the UCL round of sixteen clashes after the Los Blancos beat the host brutally by 5-2.

It was such a horrible show for the All-Reds after starting the game on a positive note with two quick-fire goals from Darwin Nunez and Mo. Salah earned them a two-goal advantage.

However, what transpired aftermatch has been hurtful to the squad as Real Madrid canceled out the two-goal advantage for Liverpool before the first half even finished.

The defending champion put their foot on top of Liverpool’s throat after the second half got going and added another three to their first half two goals and finished the game with 5-2.

Jamie Carragher, the Liverpool legendary center-back and BBC football pundit has condemned the performance of the team and expressed the event as ’embarrassing’.

“I’m not feeling too good, well done to Madrid. I’ve never seen a team come to Anfield and destroy Liverpool like that in Europe. Embarrassing, shambolic.”- Carragher told bbc football after the loss to Real Madrid.

“That was a disgrace from Liverpool, the second half. Very embarrassing. We’ve made excuses for them all season, but that was a disgrace in that second half. To lose that half 3-0 when you’re attacking the Kop at 2-2 and in a knockout game. Trust me! It was Shambolic and I can’t think about that.”- he went on adding.

Liverpool looked sharp in front of the opposition’s box as Mo. Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Cody Gakpo stuck the play together decently but that couldn’t rescue them from preventing the shameful loss.

Real Madrid took advantage of the shaky defense of the All-Reds as Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez were awful in front of Alisson who made a terrible mistake that led to the Glactico’s second goal and Carragher was not shy of criticizing the leader of the team.

“Virgil van Dijk said I wouldn’t get in that back four a few months ago. I think I’d take his place at the moment.”- Jamie Carragher furiously concluded.
