This is a clash between two of the top teams in Europe with 19 UEFA Champions League titles between them, as Real Madrid will be traveling to England to take on Liverpool at the Anfield Stadium.
There have been seven Champions League meetings between these two teams, including the first leg, with Liverpool winning 3 games, while Real Madrid have won 4 matches. There were 5 clean sheets in those games.
Liverpool will be without Divock Origi, Caoimhin Kelleher, Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, and Virgil Van Dijk due to injury. Real Madrid, on the other hand, will be without Lucas Vázquez, Sergio Ramos, and Daniel Carvajal due to injury, while Raphael Varane will miss out due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Liverpool have a huge mountain to climb against a Real Madrid side with lots of experience in the team, and they will have to win by a 3-goal margin or by 2-0 and the Blancos will be hoping to get an away goal to increase their chances of making their first semifinal since they won the tournament in 2018. Jurgen Klopp’s boys may win the battle, but Zinedine Zidane’s should win the war.
