Kroos shares Madrid game-plan

Toni Kroos has admitted Real Madrid targeted Liverpool's defence last night.

The Reds' defensive problems this season have been well-documented after losing Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip to serious injury.

And the German has explained how the La Liga giants preyed on the Reds youthful backline in the trio's ongoing absence.

Lot of things went well in the first half. I think we came out very motivated and even concentrated in our game plan and it went well, we tried to attack them very early because we knew the that they also have to change some players because they have some injured players at the back. So, maybe we thought that’s going to be a good chance to win the ball very early and it went well.

“And of course when we have the ball, our idea was to keep the ball, keep the possession and play forward. And I think all of this went well especially when we lost the ball, we got the back ball very fast, I think this was one key for this for this great first half.

“Yeah, I mean it’s normal, I think that you try to figure out of the rival you know where some points where you can attack them. But it’s not only the point because they had to change some defenders but also that they come not too easily to their front because of all of us now what quality they have and you know in the front so one idea of course was to attack the defenders so that they cannot go easily to the front where they have most of their qualities.”
