The La Liga giants were filmed in training via Empire of the Kop the day after their 1-0 win against Liverpool in a very celebratory mood, with a number of players in good spirits following their impressive result over the reigning European champions on home soil.

Yet some Liverpool fans on social media were quick to mock Diego Simeone’s side for being jubilant following their big result against the Reds, with a few supporters bringing up last season’s 4-0 win against Barcelona as the Premier League side overturned a 3-0 deficit to reach the Champions League final.
Here’s what a handful of Liverpool supporters had to say on Twitter about the video…
We’re absolutely massive

No team talk needed by Jürgen for the return match, then! 😉

Anfield has played home to some memorable comebacks in recent times, and this current Liverpool team will be feeling confident in replicating another miracle in a few weeks time.
