Liverpool fall to Toulouse.
Liverpool lost 2-3 away to Toulouse in the fourth leg of their UEFA Europa League Group E match of the 2023-2024 season at the Stade de Toulouse in Toulouse, France, on Tuesday (June 10). It was Liverpool’s first defeat in the Europa League after three consecutive wins.
The Reds remain at the top of Group E with three wins, one loss, and nine points, but will have to wait until later to secure a spot in the round of 16. Toulouse are second with two wins, one draw, and seven points.
Their opponent was Toulouse, 14th in French Ligue 1.
Liverpool conceded a goal in the 36th minute of the first half. They added another goal 13 minutes into the second half through Tees Darlinga. Darlinga has scored goals in both home and away games against Liverpool. He is the first player from a French club to score both home and away against Liverpool in European club competition since Didier Drogba (then of Marseille) in the 2003-2004 season.
Liverpool responded with an own goal in the 29th minute, but conceded again just two minutes later. Diogo Jota scored a late equalizer in the 44th minute, but it wasn’t enough to turn the game around.
Toulouse is the first time Liverpool have lost a game in which Jota has scored a goal. Jota has scored in 38 games (excluding Toulouse) since joining the club in September 2020. Liverpool are unbeaten in 32 games in which he has scored a goal. But the loss to Toulouse broke that record. 보스토토
Liverpool defender Joe Gomes said: “I’m disappointed. We should have defended better. We made the result today, but we have to bounce back. We still have two games left.”
