Alisson Becker explained how Liverpool put an end to their run without a clean sheet after a second in a row helped to secure a place in the Champions League last 16. “It was just a matter of time and of focus,” the goalkeeper told Liverpoolfc.com in Austria.
“The last two games, we were focused for the full game. Even if they had chances we were there, the defenders were there and I was there to help the team.
We just need to keep going with this focus because we know our quality and we know what we can do on the pitch when we put in our whole intensity.
You need to do that for 90 minutes – it’s hard, we know, but I think we showed we can do this.”
“The message was just to keep going and keep working,” Alisson revealed of the team’s half-time discussions.
“In the first half they made our job more difficult with their intensity they put in; they had chances, of course, but we neutralised them in the chances, I could make the saves.
I’m happy with the result and happy with what we did on the pitch.
It was a difficult game for us but we did very well, everybody playing together and moving together, defending in a good way and attacking in a good way.
I’m glad about the score, I’m glad about the clean sheet – but the three points were the most important thing we needed.”
