Only a win against Basel could bring the ticket of the next round for Liverpool. But to get that ticket they failed miserably. They had a draw against the Swiss club with the scoreline as 1-1 and they are out of the tournament with that.

Liverpool needed a win but they ended up allowing a goal first and went to the back foot. Captain of the ALL RED’s Gerard scored at the last moments of the game but that goal only brought equality not win. Liverpool couldn’t deliver the win in this match either. With this match they are out of the Champions League. With an unbeaten champions league so far, Real Madrid already made it to the next round. Both Basel and Liverpool had the chances to go to the next round. Liverpool needed a win where Basel needed a draw. So in the end Basel ended up going to the next round.

Liverpool ended up conceding the goal at the 25th minute of the match. Fabian Frey scored for Basel with an amazing crossed shot on Liverpool’s net.

Liverpool was desperate for a goal and attacked one after the other but they couldn’t break through. On the contrary Basel is the one who created more chances with fast counter attack. To make things even worse for Liverpool their striker Markovic was shown a red card on the 60th minute. he hit the face of an opponent defender when he was trying to get away with the ball. His behavior afterwards was really bad too.

Liverpool was still on the offensive with 10 players. the captain of Liverpool Steven Gerard equalized the score on the 81st minute of the match with a breathtaking free-kick.

with that goal Liverpool was back in the match but with only 9 minutes and injury time remaining, they couldn’t score another goal and the match ended in a draw.

Gerard was very sad about this match and he said – “with this kind of performance, Liverpool isn’t worthy to go to the next round. But we can’t say we couldn’t advance to the next round because of today’s match. We couldn’t go because we allowed a bad goal to be scored against us in the injury time against Basel in their home ground. it is a very big disappointment for Liverpool.”
