“It’s tough today, to be honest,” Liverpool said. “Benfica had a really good plan for the game and was fighting for their lives. It was a good first half from us and then we scored because we opened the door for Benfica a little bit.” Amazon trainer.
“The atmosphere was really good in general, even better after Benfica’s goal,” Klopp said. “We were able to calm it down a bit with the substitutions. The third goal helped us a lot and we had chances to score more.”

His players still struggled from time to time, as the opponents had a lot to do with what the English media gave them credit for.
“I’m not completely crazy and I think we have to get rid of Benfica here. Before the game, an English colleague asked me how happy I would be if we could have a really cool second leg next week. Oh my! Benfica didn’t equalize there, but he survived,” Klopp said. A very tough group and I end up with one of the most exciting teams in Europe with Ajax Amsterdam.”
Despite his two-goal lead, his team was by no means finished. Klopp: “It’s not over yet. It’s only half the time. Benfica also won in Amsterdam.”
Special Praise for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Luis Diaz
Klopp was particularly impressed by the players. “The way Trent Alexander-Arnold prepares for the second goal is crazy. I often don’t know how he recognizes these things,” the coach said.
When asked about the performance of Luis Diaz, the top scorer with a 3-1 score, Klopp just said: “He’s a top-class player. He’s world-class. It’s a pleasure every day to be with Luis and I’m more than happy that we decided to sign him in January” .
Before next Wednesday, the semi-finals are scheduled to be clarified, and Liverpool are scheduled to face Manchester City in the English Premier League. “I didn’t think about the City match for a moment, and I didn’t prepare for it,” Klopp said. “Definitely not. We are here in the Champions League quarter-final.”

“We’ve put ourselves in a great starting position, it couldn’t be better. But it couldn’t be more difficult for us now. All the games are going to be very difficult now. But we have big plans and now we’re starting the match in the match. And maybe it’s more than that. A little bit,” Klopp said.
The game plan is very strange. First Benfica, then City, then Benfica, then City again in the FA Cup semi-finals. On April 16, Jurgen Klopp should get even smarter as to whether the four potential titles still exist.
