Following the panic-ridden match, Brendan Rodgers said in an interview, “There is no denying we are playing against a top-class side and we felt we could have done better with the goals we conceded and with some of our build‑up play,” he said and added, “you have to be a realist as well and respect who we are playing against. Of course we want to be competitive at this level but you also have to measure the level of quality you are playing against.”
