Real Madrid scored 5 goals in the 2022-2023 UCL Round of 16 first leg away game held at Anfield in Liverpool, England on the 22nd (Korean time) and won Liverpool 5-2.

Liverpool, who fell 2-5 on the aggregate score, will be faced with the burden of scoring four goals in the second leg to be held on the 16th of next month at the opponent’s home, Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid, Spain.

According to Opta, a media outlet specializing in football records, this is the first time Liverpool have conceded five runs at Anfield during a European match.

This is the first game in UCL history to lose by 3 goals even after scoring 2 goals first.

On this day, Real Madrid showed a high level of determination by kicking 9 shots and scoring 5 goals.

It was also the first time since the 2003-2004 season that Opta tallied game figures that fewer than 10 shots on target made five goals.

It was Liverpool who laughed at the beginning of the game.

Liverpool took the lead four minutes into the match through Darwin Núñez’s goal from Mohamed Salach’s pass from the left corner of the penalty box.

Salach snatched the ball in front of the gate 10 minutes later, not missing an error from opponent goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, and tasted the goal himself, leading to a 2-0 lead.

Real Madrid made up for one goal in the 21st minute with a surprise right-footed shot after Vinicius Junior kept the ball in the left corner of the penalty box despite a scuffle.

Fifteen minutes later, a ball that Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson mishandled this time hit Vinicius’ body and was sucked into the net, giving Real Madrid a head start.

Real Madrid, on the offensive at the end of the first half, even scored a come-from-behind goal within two minutes of the start of the second half.

Luka Modric’s free kick cross from the left flank was finished by Eder Militang’s header.

In Real Madrid, where momentum has risen, main goalkeeper Karim Benzema also tasted a goal in the 10th minute of the second half.

Benzema’s shot, which entered the penalty box through a 2-1 pass with Rodrygo, hit the defender’s body and was deflected, and Alisson shook the net with a trajectory that was out of hand.

In the 23rd minute of the second half, Modric, Vinicius, and Benzema, who recorded the attack points, completed the goal feast by jointly scoring the 5th goal.

Modric, who cut off the opponent’s pass from the rear, drove the ball at once and connected an infiltration pass to Vinicius, who ran forward beyond the center circle.

Vinicius relayed it to Benzema, who rushed into the penalty kick, who, after passing Alisson with a trick, kicked a calm left-footed shot into the empty net.

Liverpool struggled to create an attacking opportunity until the end, such as Salach stealing the ball after pressing forward in the 44th minute of the second half, but could not overturn the three-goal difference.

On this day, Liverpool and Real Madrid recorded 9 shots side by side, and there was no significant difference in the rest of the figures, such as 5-6 effective shots, 52%-48% share, and 555-528 passes.

The two teams faced each other in the UCL final last season as well, when Real Madrid lifted the trophy thanks to Vinicius’ winning goal.
