Liverpool suffered a first defeat in their UEFA Youth League campaign on Tuesday at Atletico Madrid.

Atletico won 2-0 on the day.

Aitor Gismera's opener after 26 minutes and a Salim El Jebari finish midway through the second half condemned the young Reds to defeat in the Spanish capital.

The result leaves Marc Bridge-Wilkinson's side in third spot in Group B with four points, behind Atletico on goal difference.

The visitors started well in front of former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres, who is now part of Atletico's academy set-up. But while enjoying plenty of possession, they struggled to break down an organised opponent.

Liverpool U19s: Davies, Bradley, Quansah, Koumetio, Beck, Stephenson (Bajcetic, 46), Morton, Norris (Mabaya, 82), Balagizi (Frauendorf, 70), Musialowski (Blair, 46), Woltman.

Unused substitutes: Mrozek, Chambers, Clark.
