Griezmann was then shown a straight red card from the get-go in the second half for getting Roberto Firmino with a high boot.
The in-structure Salah fixed each of the three focuses for Liverpool with a 78th-minute spot-kick, despite the fact that Simeone and every other person related with Atletico were left enraged when they had a punishment toppled following a VAR audit in a matter of seconds a short time later.
Simeone felt the punishment ought to have stood when Jose Gimenez went down inside the Liverpool box, yet the choice was upset when official Daniel Siebert surveyed the episode on the pitch-side screen.
Incensed by that, in addition to the early choice to ship off Griezmann, Simeone dashed down the passage when the full-time whistle was blown.
The Argentine mentor didn’t warmly greet Klopp, who naturally wasn’t content with the scorn.
In any case, this was a tremendous triumph for Klopp’s side, who will be hoping to keep up their incredible run of structure when they take on rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Reds do fight with Atletico indeed on November 3 at Anfield and it vows to be one more fiery night between two of Europe’s best groups.
