Liverpool out of Europa despite second-leg win over Atalanta



Liverpool have been knocked out of the Europa League despite beating Atalanta 1-0 in the second leg of their quarterfinal tie on Thursday night.

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg in Anfield, Liverpool hoped to pull off an incredible comeback in Italy but only scored a goal.

The only goal of the game was scored in the seventh minute when Mohamed Salah converted a penalty to give the Jurgen Klopp side some hopes.
