WATCH: Exeter City leads Liverpool at half thanks to incredible Olimpico

The simple way you can explain this is it’s “the magic of the FA Cup.” After being forced to play a lineup of youngsters, Jose Enrique and Christian Benteke, Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp went to League Two side Exeter City feeling a bit vulnerable.

After falling behind and quickly equalizing, Exeter City and Lee Holmes scored an Olimpico right before halftime.

Two things wrong with this and both are on Liverpool. Not taking away from the great shot but Adam Bogdan was in an incredibly terrible position to not be anywhere near the ball. And if he’s going to do whatever it was that he did, put a player on the back post. Liverpool did neither and Exeter City went up 2-1 going into halftime.
