LASK 1-3 Liverpool
Queen Kelleher – 7
There are not many difficult missions in this game. But there were some nice saves in the second half as they used their legs to make close saves to help the team not concede any more goals.
Ibrahima Konate – 7
He returned to the field again after recovering from the injury. The defense did a good job. Use your speed and strength to tackle the home offensive line.
Virgil van Dijk – 7
He returned to the field because the suspension has no effect in European matches. Today, he hardly faces difficult work. There were many moments of scoring in the penalty area.
Stefan Pejcetic – 6
He was deployed as a right-back in an inverted full-back role. The focus today is on Hup coming in to help the game in the middle. But it still doesn’t do a good job of creating games.
Kostas Simikas – 6
He was deployed as a left-back who did not perform at a very high level because he had to control the defense as another position because the team played an inverted system. There were some opportunities to put the ball in, but it did not reach the goal.
Wataru Endo – 6
Waiting for a delivery to deliver the ball in midfield but still seems to be one step behind in passing the ball. It seems that speed and strength are second only to the home team’s midfield.
Harvey Elliott – 7
The role is heavy on the offensive side, and today he was going well with the ball. There were many moments of game making in dangerous areas.
Ryan Grafenbrech – 8
His form is extremely impressive in his role as a key to resting the ball and shaping the game. He played well with the ball, dared to play, dared to dribble, and provided one assist until he suffered an injury and was substituted.
Ben Duke – 6
Go down and make a play on the right side. There were some moments that lingered. But it is clear that they still lack experience in making decisions.
Luis Diaz – 8
I didn’t handle the ball much. But he often has the opportunity to finish the game in the penalty area. Besides scoring one goal from a close attack, this was the team’s main goal.
Darwin Nunez – 7
Today it is considered that there are many opportunities for completion. But they still missed opportunities, especially a close-range header that was unfortunately blocked. But he compensated for that by scoring a penalty kick, and the team equalized.
Dominik Szoboszlai (replaces Doak, 61) – 7
He creates a better dimension to the midfield game, both offensively and helping break the game down.
Alexis McAllister (for Endo, 61) – 6
Get down to control the rhythm of the midfield. Focus on giving control of the defensive game, and waiting to play the ball with her teammates.
Joe Gomez (replaced Bijcetic, 61) – 7
Mainly focusing on the game at the edge. He has speed that is useful for both attack and defense.
Mohamed Salah (in place of Grafenbrech 74) – 8
Come down and make a visible difference on the front line. Goes well with the ball. He always creates problems for the home team’s defense and scores one goal from a close shot that slipped into an easy shot.
Joel Matip (replaced Konate, 81) – Not applicable
