“Heartbroken” – Liverpool fans react to Europa League final defeat to Sevilla

Following Liverpool’s heartbreaking 3-1 defeat to Sevilla in the Europa League final, we take a look at how the fans reacted on social media.

For 45 minutes, it looked as though the Reds were on their way to a glorious victory, but things went horrible wrong after half-time.

Daniel Sturridge‘s wonderful first-half strike sent the travelling Liverpool supporters wild, but that was the high point of the game from a Reds perspective.

Kevin Gameiro scored seconds after the restart, and Coke found the net twice, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side melted in their biggest match of the season.

It was a bitter pill to swallow, and although there are plenty of positives to take from the campaign, two defeats in two finals this season has to go down as a big disappointment.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s Europa League final defeat unfold.


There was a wonderful atmosphere in Basel prior to kick-off, as Liverpool fans took over the city…


Sturridge’s magical opener sent Reds supporters into delirium…


Fans gave their thoughts on an impressive first-half performance…


Supporters were stunned shortly after, as Liverpool capitulated after half-time…


Then distraught fans gave their assessment of the game after the final whistle…

Tale of two halves. After a nervy first few minutes we bossed them, got the goal we deserved, but not the TWO penalties we also deserved. The officiating was nothing short of horrific.

Second half was an utter bottling, and an absolute sham from those players – that was a slap in the face to the thousands of fans who spent their hard earned cash to be there to support the team. Coutinho was completely anonymous, Can was very poor, and Moreno was just horrific.

One of the worst halves I’ve seen us play this season. Total collapse. Shambles.
