Real Madrid is in great shape!
Real Madrid has literally risen like the phoenix from the ashes. Both in La Liga and in the Champions League in which he was immersed.
They did so well on all fronts that they are in a series of 11 games without a loss. Of which 9 are victories.
All this has led to a situation in which they are only 3 points away from Atletico in La Liga and are in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
According to people familiar with the team, the difficulties were mainly due to personnel problems, which constantly harass Zidane.
Even now it turns out that captain Sergio Ramos will most likely be absent.
And there are 3 very difficult meetings, which is more important than which. Both against Liverpool and between them El Clásico on Saturday.
For those who like to make forecasts only on the basis of statistics, I want to recommend the following.
Not to be misled by the fact that Real Madrid have won only 6 of their last 12 matches in the Champions League.
These statistics are not authoritative for many reasons.
But in short, last season the Whites focused only on the La Liga title.
And during this poor results in the group stage were due to many injuries.
Interestingly, however, bookmakers have been influenced by this. And they set a huge odds for Real to win the Champions League.
In other words, they obviously expect the hosts to drop out of Liverpool.
Liverpool has begun to stabilize!
However, can we trust the guests as well? Which are undoubtedly one of the most hesitant grandees in their performances at the moment.
Jürgen Klopp himself has said conciliatoryly that in the Premier League his team can no longer hope for anything good.
And, of course, he is absolutely right.
How could it be otherwise, having won only 14 of 30 matches in the English championship so far.
Like Real Madrid, Liverpool was hit by a severe personnel crisis.
Which, if nothing else, at least serves as an excuse for poor results.
Of course, it is not easy to lose all three central defenders. And for a long time.
Their absence continues. And they will be replaced by hired Ozan Kabak and Nathaniel Phillips.
Remember these two names. Because I also count on their cooperation for my prognosis.
It is fair to say, however, that this new defensive line has already made three consecutive dry nets.
The last of them was in the 3-0 victory over Arsenal.
Prediction for Real Madrid - Liverpool
This match is difficult to predict. Like any other first match in the elimination phase.
Teams are mainly looking for security. The goal is not to concede a goal first, and only then is everything else.
I guess there will be a low-scoring match here as well. And even just one goal could solve everything in it.
With such unpredictability, there is nothing I can do on the market for the final outcome.
I really like, of course, a bet for under 2.5 goals in the match. Which has an excellent risk / return ratio.
But it also requires a slightly larger bet.
However, I thought of something else.
Real Madrid are one of the teams in La Liga that mark a lot of static positions.
I took the trouble to review all of their players with the highest potential to score.
And I've noticed that almost everyone often scores with their head.
At the same time, Liverpool allow an unusual amount for their standards from static positions.
This could not have escaped the sight of Zinedine Zidane.
And when we add the new pair of central defenders of the Reds, I do not rule out that Real will do a lot of centering.
Under these circumstances, if the Whites note, the chance of a header is not small.
Of course, the first goal of the match may be for Liverpool.
And although Mohamed Salah rarely scores with his head, some others, such as Sadio Mane, are experts in this way.
After all, this prediction can be played with a half-smaller bet than the Under 2.5 goal.
And to bet on the first goal with a header, it seems to me that there may be a little more than the necessary at least 17% chance to be valuable.
