We were lucky today, we know that, Klopp told Mediaset Premium after Liverpool reached the Champions League final.

Roma are strong, we had them where we wanted, as they were wild, ran the risks and we went 2-1 up. All good.

But then we didnt do enough on the counter, we didnt use the space that they gave us and we lost the game after going 1-0 up already.
