Atletico Madrid’s Marcos Llorente was the hero on the night they knocked holders Liverpool out of the Champions League just before the novel coronavirus pandemic disrupted football and he has been watching repeats of the match during lockdown.

Llorente scored for Atletico in the first half of extra time in the last-16 second leg in Merseyside on March 11 and then struck again before Alvaro Morata rounded off a 3-2 win for the visitors to secure a 4-2 aggregate victory.

“We all enjoyed that night a lot. I’ve watched it a good few times in these last few months,” Llorente told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser on Friday.

“At home I’ve had all the time in the world and every time I see it the hairs on my skin stand up. I’ve watched the whole match a couple of times and extra time three or four.”
