Liverpool's defeat is more embarrassing than Tottenham Hotspur

After yesterday's Champions League champions Liverpool, Liverpool were beaten by Atletico Madrid with a score of 1-0, in the first leg of the last 16 round, early this morning, the turn of the Champions League Runner-up, Tottenham Hotspur who had to suffer defeat by guests Leipzig also with a score 0-1 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as reported by thesun.co.uk



The defeat experienced by Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, can be said to be very embarrassing. How not, the two teams that qualified for the final round of the Champions League last season (the Champion and the Runner-up), had to suffer defeat, even though the Champions League this season had just entered the last 16.

But when viewed from the match statistics in detail, it turns out Liverpool is more embarrassing than Tottenham Hotspur. Able to fully control the game, with ball masters of more than 70%, but Mohamed Salah and his friends are not able to make any kick on target (on-target). A very bad record for a Champions League championship team.

While Tottenham Hotspur also suffered a 0-1 defeat, Jose Mourinho's men were able to create 6 on-target kicks. Just because the opponent's goal keeper was brilliantly played, and the penalty kick awarded by the referee to Leipzig, resulted in Tottenham Hotspur failing to win points in his first match in the knock-out round, as reported by skysports.com.

Especially in this match against Leipzig, Jose Mourinho had to lose Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, who suffered injuries in the previous match. As is known Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son are two of the most important players in Tottenham Hotspur's main squad.

Although Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur must both suffer 0-1 losses to Atletico Madrid and Leipzig, the defeat of the Red feels more embarrassing than the defeat of the Lilywhites. Because as a team that is unbeaten and almost certain to win the Premier League this season, and as a team that won the Champions League last season, Liverpool's defeat, has really embarrassed English and European football.
