Reigning champion Liverpool suffered a defeat in the 1/8 of the Champions League

Today, February 19, 1/8 of the Champions League kicked off.

Atletico Madrid hosted the reigning winner of Europe's top club tournament, Liverpool, at home and won with a minimal score of 1 : 0.

In the fourth minute, Coque gave the ball from a corner, and it ricocheted off Saul and into the goal of Alison. In the remaining time, the English were unable to show anything of substance in the Madrid half. It should be noted that the Merseysiders did not score a single shot on goal.

In the parallel match Borussia Dortmund defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2 : 1.

The fans saw the goals in this meeting only in the second half. On 69 minutes, Erling Holann opened the scoring. After the rebound, the 19-year-old striker picked up the ball and hammered it into the net. It did not take long for the Parisians to reply. Mbappe volleyed a cross into the penalty area before Neymar sealed the spot-kick. In the 77th minute of the match, Holand took the lead with a powerful long-range shot that stunned PSG's goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

The return matches of these pairs will be held on March 11. Other matches in the eighth round of the Champions League will be played today. England's Tottenham will take on Germany's RB Leipzig and Spain's Valencia will travel to Italy's Atalanta.
