RB Leipzig’s head coach has talked about his team’s performance against Liverpool.

Julian Nagelsmann’s

side was defeated by

Liverpool

in the Champions League, but he doesn’t think

RB Leipzig

deserved that result considering their performance.

“When you win, you're always right, but we earned a lot of respect in the 90 minutes,"

the Leipzig boss told reporters post-match

. "We were definitely not worse and certainly not two goals worse.

“The big difference was they scored with their two chances, we had three big chances and weren’t clinical enough. For the two big mistakes we committed we were punished, and at such a high level that’s normal."

The Reds’ boss has also talked about his team after the match, saying that he was satisfied with his players’ performance.

"We played a really good game and we got the result we deserved,"

Jurgen Klopp  said post-match.

"We defended really well and had good recovery. It was a tough game with only two days since the last one. It's only the first leg, we know that but a lot of people were waiting for us to slip again.

"For two years we were really good and this year we have problems, that's fine. A lot of people expected us to slip again but the boys didn't."
