MUNICH – For Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool, things are going well, at least in the Champions League: The English runners-up reached the knockout stages for the sixth time in a row with a 3-0 (1-0) victory at Ajax Amsterdam. Inter Milan and FC Porto also advanced early on Wednesday, while Barcelona missed the last 16 like last year.
Liverpool were lucky initially in Amsterdam, before striker Mohamed Salah (42nd place), Ajax missed several first-class chances. After the break, new signings Darwin Nunez (49) and Harvey Elliott (51) collected millions. Klopp’s team lost 0-1 (0-0) in the Premier League at the bottom of the Nottingham Forest table and is only eighth.
UEFA Champions League: Tottenham falter
On the other hand, Liverpool’s rivals, Tottenham, have to shiver in the entire open fourth group after the 1-1 (0-1) draw against Sporting Lisbon. Striker Harry Kane’s supposed winning goal (90+5), which would have meant entering the knockout stages, was waived due to an offside position. The fifth victory in the fifth match in Group A was achieved by the previously qualified Napoli team, by defeating Glasgow Rangers 3-0 (2-0).
Porto got their ticket to the Round of 16 with a 4-0 (1-0) win over leaders FC Brugge because Bayer Leverkusen drew with Atlético. The Belgians, who have already crossed safely and visit Verkselve next Tuesday, twice failed with a penalty.
Inter Milan pays Belsen
Meanwhile, Inter concluded the end of Barcelona with a 4-0 (2-0) victory over Victoria Pilsen before the Catalan team faced Bayern Munich (0-3) at home. As in the previous year, Barcelona continues to play only in the European League.
Ex-Bundesliga professionals Heinrich Mechitarjan (35) and Edin Dzeko (42 and 66) as well as Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku (87) succeeded on his return after a two-month injury. This means that twelve of the 16 roles have been identified.
