Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool ‘should have scored more’ in win over Benfica


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits his side should have scored more in their 3-1 victory over Benfica having dominated the first half of their Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon. The Reds could have put the tie to bed before the second leg with the number of chances they created in the opening 45 minutes but they were still cruising at the break thanks to Ibrahima Konate’s first goal since joining from RB Leipzig in the summer and Sadio Mane’s close-range strike. Klopp was unhappy his side then gifted Darwin Nunez a goal just after the break, when Konate’s misjudgement presented him with a simple chance, and that changed the direction of the game until winger Luis Diaz, on his first return to Portugal since leaving Porto in January, struck in the 87th minute.
