Real Madrid 1-0 Liverpool – A solitary goal from Karim Benzema was enough to condemn the Reds to a third successive Champions League defeat, as they were beaten for the second time in three weeks by the defending European Champions.
Karim Benzema Goal – Did Real deserve their opener?
But Brendan Rodgers’ side will take heart from their performance, which included stand out performances from several of the club’s lesser stars, including goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and defender Kolo Toure.
Read the full Liverpool ratings below:
GK) Simon Mignolet – 8
Several excellent saves from the Belgian goalkeeper, particularly in the first-half, and could do nothing about the goal.
RB) Javi Manquillo – 6
Another fine performance from the young Spaniard, who defended well and got forward to support attacks.
