Liverpool out of Europa despite second-leg win over Atalanta

RIPPLES

Liverpool have been knocked out of the Europa League despite beating Atalanta 1-0 in the second leg of their quarterfinal tie on Thursday night.

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg in Anfield, Liverpool hoped to pull off an incredible comeback in Italy but only scored a goal.

The only goal of the game was scored in the seventh minute when Mohamed Salah converted a penalty to give the Jurgen Klopp side some hopes.

The Reds have had a tough time of late, with their last match in the Premier League ending in a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace, denting their title hopes.

Meanwhile, West Ham also crashed out of the competition after playing a 1-1 draw with Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen, who had won 2-0 in the first leg of the tie last week.

Elsewhere in the Europa League, Roma advanced to the semifinal with a 3-1 aggregate victory over AC Milan, having won 1-0 in the first leg at San Siro.
