Rafael Benitez has admitted to reporters that he was never expecting his side to demolish Real Madrid in the fashion they did last night.

A 4-0 victory, 5-0 on aggregate, saw Liverpool dish out Real Madrid’s biggest Champions League defeat to end their challenge at the last sixteen stage for the fifth season running.

“I couldn’t image that score,” Benitez told reporters.

“When you play Real Madrid it will be difficult and tight. We played really well away, at times we were fantastic, and we did well in a different way tonight. That showed we are a good team.”

“We knew maybe they were expecting we would play deep and try to play counter attacking football. But we tried to put them under pressure. We were on top of them to the end.”
