Before the match, the Reds fans made the gathering but now, after the match, the fans will be agreed on this. Liverpool should not have played the match. The current champion of the Champions League Liverpool faced the defeat against Atletico Madrid at the Anfield by a 3- 2 goals. As a result, their Champions League journey was ended. From the round of the last sixteen, the Reds have taken their leave. If the match of the 11th March was not taken place, the dream of winning the Champions League for the back to back to times would live for Liverpool. But the dream of the Reds will not come true this time.
After the match, almost three weeks have passed already. But why the topic has come again? The analysts believe that by the match between Liverpool and Atletico Madrid, the outbreak of the Coronavirus increased in Liverpool. At least the current health director of the city stated that it was a wrong decision to give permission for the game in their city. In the last Wednesday, the newly appointed Matthew Aston thinks that if the match between the Reds and Atletico did not take place, the infected people’s number in the city would not 262. So, the Champions League match between them should have been postponed.

On the 11th of March 2020, there were only 456 infection peoples in England. But yesterday, the number was more than 38 thousand. Among them, more than three and a half thousand peoples have died there which is much more than China, according to the report. The British news portal ‘The Guardian’ Aston told that in that moment, the match should not have been staged in Liverpool. They did not make the mistake willingly for sure. The importance of the situation was not fully understood back then by the government. They can never know for sure but it might be a reason for spreading Coronavirus in Liverpool much than before. For future inquiry, they will have to count the situation. The rest organizations will get help from the incident and be careful next time.
