‘F***ing hell lads!’: Jamie Carragher’s hilarious goal-by-goal reaction in the studio as Liverpool legend goes from sheer elation to utter despair watching his team collapse to a brutal 5-2 home defeat by Real Madrid
Liverpool had got off to the best possible start against a Real Madrid side who have beaten them in two Champions League finals in the last five years.
Darwin Nunez opened the scoring inside four minutes with an audacious flick, before Anfield erupted when Mohamed Salah struck just ten minutes later.
Carragher was the epitome of all Liverpool fans, going completely wild and screaming in the CBS studios as his former side raced into a quick lead in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
However, things soon took a turn for the worse and Carragher ultimately became more and more frustrated to the point where had no words left.
Liverpool went from racing to a two-goal lead to losing 5-2 against Real Madrid at Anfield
When Vinicius Jr halved the deficit, a wound up Carragher said: ‘F***ing hell lads. How can he get the ball in the box like that?’
The Brazilian winger then struck again 15 minutes later when fellow countryman Alisson made a serious blunder.
The Liverpool keeper attempted to find Joe Gomez with a simple pass but instead smashed it straight against Vinicius Jr who knew very little about it until it landed in an empty net.
In pure disbelief, Carragher was silenced before saying: ‘Just pass it lad. Do the simple thing! Don’t try to be clever.’
After losing their two-goal lead in the first-half, Liverpool then found themselves 3-2 down thanks to a bullet header from Eder Militao.
It was at this point that Carragher had very little to say, except a few expletives that had to be bleeped out.
When Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema made it 4-2, albeit via a deflection off Joe Gomez, Carragher simply shook his head, wondering how on earth it had reached this point at Anfield.
The Frenchman soon added a fifth to compound Liverpool and Carragher’s misery, with the ex-England defender unable to get any words out.
The Spanish giants have become Liverpool’s nemesis in recent years, and Jurgen Klopp’s side will need to pull off a miracle in Madrid when the two sides meet again in three weeks for the return leg.
