Liverpool fans are no strangers to drama and their latest Champions League exploits again abandoned many of them drained.
The Reds have surely experienced unbelievable highs and lows – from missing out to the Champions League win of last season on the Premier League title.
On Wednesday night, lovers experienced the complete spectrum of feelings as Liverpool raced to a 3-0 lead over Red Bull Salzburg, were pegged back to 3-3, then found Mohamed Salah snatch a stunning winner.
Last season Liverpool dropped just short of the imperious Manchester City side in the league title racebut it was not for the want of trying.
In almost every game that they squeezed every last minute out of a game, scoring crucial goals from Tottenham and Crystal Palace to maintain them.
That never-say-die mindset was on display on Wednesdayand, even when the was finished by Salzburg, there was the sense that Liverpool would discover a way in the long run.
We demonstrated character, said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. I was not surprised about that, which is why I wasnt overly concerned at 3-3 because I knew we would have opportunities
Liverpool fans are used particularly, to winning at home and especially in Europe.
When Real Madrid won 3-0, they have not experienced defeat at a contest at Anfield since 2014.
There was a feeling of anticipation. The Anfield atmosphere was but somewhat subdued – understandable given the ease.
But as soon as the visitors found their way back in the match, the home supporters did their role. They lifted their side since they cheered every break and every possession-winning tackle.
At 3-3, our guys put a lot into it and they were a bit exhausted and the power of this stadium selects up, explained Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch. Liverpool is also an extraordinary team.
Klopp added:The fans are always important.
In a game like that to celebrate winning a press ball like a objective. I am like this. The atmosphere was intense.
The people recall that were in Anfield and something is possible
At the face of the dominant home album of Liverpool , many sides have arrived at Anfield looking prior to the whistle was blown beaten.
As soon as I requested one Salzburg enthusiast when he expected his side to triumph, he just laughed. Really, none would triumph. At best they hoped to get a draw.
Marsch admitted that his players were fearful of the opponents to begin with.
We had too much respect for Liverpool in the first half, so which is for certain, he said.
We learned when you come to some place like Anfield that it isnt merely the opponent; it is the entire experience.
For Liverpool, this match also provided a lesson.
We opened the door and they were running through, said Klopp. It was a very important lesson for us .
Liverpool know where for, they will need to improve and a side which have won each Premier League match this season, this really is an ominous sign for their own enemies.
