Liverpool against Real Madrid
The 9th in the UEFA rankings meets the 2nd in a rematch of the 1/4 finals of the Champions League.
Liverpool are a 6-time winner of CASH. And lost 1-3 the first match of the 13-time champion of the tournament - Real Madrid.
So far, the two teams have met a total of 7 times. And the balance is 4-3 in favor of the White Ballet.
Liverpool show character!
Liverpool are 22 points behind Man City in the Premier League. And the question of defending the title is finally over.
At the moment, however, they are definitely on an upward trend.
And after victories over the Wolves, Arsenal and Aston Villa, although in 6th place in the standings, are only 3 points behind 4th West Ham.
That is, the Merseysiders have a real chance to fight for the Champions League next season.
Beating Aston Villa 2-1 after falling behind, they also showed the necessary character. With which their followers know them.
Another positive point is that they managed to break their negative home series of 8 games without a win, of which 6 were lost.
We are already used to announcing Virgil Van Dyke, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip as the big absentees.
So it will be for this match. But at least there won't be any.
Real Madrid is in top form!
Real Madrid have also been in obvious difficulty for a long time in both La Liga and the group stage of the Champions League.
Now, however, and at the right time, as if everything falls into place with them.
And we see them in a far more familiar light of a team that can beat anyone, whether at home or away.
Real Madrid are in a series of 13 games without a loss from all tournaments. And with high self-confidence after the victory over Barcelona on Saturday.
In La Liga, they are in 2nd place with 1 point each from both the leader Atletico and the third Barcelona.
Their big problem for this match will be the injured players.
The situation in defense is especially difficult. Sergio Ramos, Rafael Varane and Daniel Carvajal are injured.
Eden Hazard will also be missing. Federico Valverde and Lucas Vazquez are also in question.
Prediction for Liverpool - Real Madrid
For this match, what we know is:
1. Two teams meet that cannot rely on their defense.
And if this is fully confirmed for the Liverpool team from their first game, now the same is expected to happen for Real in the return match.
2. Liverpool needs goals. And not only has he shown from his last meetings that he knows how to achieve them, but now he will be facilitated.
It turns out that we can count on hits from Merseysiders.
And at the same time, their whole 4 fatal mistakes in defense from the first game.
Combined with the large free spaces that will inevitably leave in the rush forward.
They also predict at least a goal for Real Madrid.
It is true that the Whites are not very attractive in attack. And they often score a goal or two only.
But it is more true that they do it with incredible method.
Having only 2 meetings in a long time, in which they have not realized at least once.
High performance and at least 8 corners is my prediction, although both teams are not big fans.
Even if there are purely tactical corner kicks, they can still cover this level. Medium bet.
