LIVERPOOL VS REAL MADRID PREDICTION

Liverpool have a mountain to climb in this Champions League second leg after falling 3-1 to Real Madrid in Spain. That mountain is even steeper when considering that they won’t have the notorious presence of a full crowd inside Anfield to roar them on. Real Madrid capitalised on an inexperienced Liverpool central defence decimated by injury to net three times in the first leg, with Brazilian Vinicius Junior the star for Zinedine Zidane’s men. Despite the absence of captain Sergio Ramos in central defence, their midfield led by the tireless Luka Modric will no doubt work extremely hard to cut off the supply to Liverpool’s dangerous attack led by Mohamed Salah, who has netted four in his last five matches in all competitions. Ultimately, Jurgen Klopp’s limited Liverpool backline is likely to prove his side’s undoing, with Madrid knowing that just one goal would leave the Reds needing at least four to advance to the semi-finals. In terms of the match itself, the result could go either way but as was the case in the first leg, goals are expected so over 2.5 scored over 90 minutes may prove the smart play here.
