14th April – 21:00, Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool and Real Madrid will face each other in the Champions League quarter-finals second leg match on Wednesday evening. The hosts search for a way back into this tie, while the visitors want to keep their advantage intact.
Liverpool vs Real Madrid Match Preview & Team News
Liverpool booked an important 2:1 victory over Aston Villa in the Premier League last weekend, although they were trailing 1:0 at halftime. They remained in the battle for the top four, and the Reds are still three points behind West Ham. Jurgen Klopp’s side celebrated for the third time in a row in the domestic championship, but they needed a late winner in the previous match. Mo Salah and the lads did not put a good display in Madrid, and their rivals secured a massive 3:1 advantage. The hosts would need to tighten the defense, as they made some ridiculous mistakes in the first leg. Liverpool should look for a much more confident performance to come from behind in this tie.
Although it seemed they won’t defend the La Liga title, Real Madrid is back in the race. Los Blancos celebrated a crucial 2:1 victory in El Clasico and climbed to 2nd place. Los Blancos are now just a point behind Atletico Madrid, and they are in a great momentum. Zinedine Zidane’s side booked six straight wins in all competitions, despite keeping the clean sheet five times during that streak. Sergio Ramos will still be unable to help his teammates, but Karim Benzema and the lads manage to compensate that in the final third. Real Madrid hasn’t lost since the end of January and missed the chance to win only twice in the previous 13 matches. The visitors have a substantial first-leg advantage, but they shouldn’t get complacent.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Liverpool doesn’t look confident at all, and the hosts will have a challenging task to book a place in the semi-finals. Real Madrid has been in much better form, and we believe they won’t lose at Anfield. Therefore, we wouldn’t be surprised if the match finishes in a draw.
Goals Market Prediction
The Reds will need to apply the attacking approach from the very start of the game, leaving some space for the visitors’ counter-attacks. We think both teams are capable of scoring, and neither of them will keep the clean sheet.
