The camera repeatedly cut to a smug looking Sergio Ramos in the stands last night, which didn’t make the viewing experience of Liverpool fans any easier…
Following the game, the Real Madrid captain tweeted a viral message of support for his team-mates.
“Anger at not being in the field, PRIDE to see them. Big love to my Real Madrid!” it said.
Rabia por no estar en el campo, ORGULLO de verlos a ellos.
¡Grande mi @realmadrid! https://t.co/7JFJHncgX2

Multiple other Real Madrid players also hit social media, including the game’s best player, Vinicius Jr, who scored twice and scared the living daylights out of our backline.
Oddly, Roberto Firmino liked his post – but that’s just what Brazilians do and not too much should be read into it.
The PR team for Gini Wijnaldum did their standard post-match tweet, too – and most Liverpool reaction followed these lines.
We hope they’re right and next Wednesday, we can get an early goal and at least make it interesting.
