Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on BT Sport:  reaction after lose.

"Football is like this. It's about scoring goals, and they scored three and we scored none.

"Our performance was really good, the boys played a super game. But against Barcelona just a few opportunities can be enough [for them].

"I was happy with the performance, not too happy with the result. That's football. It was a hard result but we have to accept it."

"Barcelona showed they had more experience. We saw that in the moments when they stopped our rythym, going down, but that's part of the game.

"3-0 is not the easiest result but we we have another game [second leg] and our people will be there."
