Liverpool vs Real Madrid: Prediction and Betting Tips
Liverpool aiming for a comeback
By beating Aston Villa at home on Saturday, Liverpool broke a spell of winless home games dating back to the beginning of the year. This win will give confidence to Jurgen Klopp’s team as they need a clear 2-0 win to advance to the semi-finals.
Prior to their defeat in the first leg, Liverpool had lost one game in the Champions League this season at home to Atalanta 2-0. They won two of the last five home matches at Anfield in the Champios League. Mohammad salah will be the key man to score as the Egyptian has scored four goals in five matches.
In the 1st leg match in Madrid, Jurgen Klopp saw his team have slightly more possession of the ball but the Spanish side were very effective in creating chances with 16 goal attempts while Liverpool had seven attempts of which just one was on target.
It’s not a done deal yet for Real Madrid
Los Blancos prepared for this match in the best possible way by beating Barcelona in the Classico on Saturday. Zidane’s men showed great resilience and fighting spirit to overcome difficult opponents and very tough climate conditions. Will fatigue take its toll on the Madrid players needs to be seen.
Already hit by injuries, Zidane has more worries as he lost Lucas Vazquez through injury and Toni Kroos has fitness issues. All these problems will be key in the Frenchman’s preparation for the Champions League 2nd leg tie as they go to Anfield with a two-goal cushion knowing that Liverpool are not easy opponents and will put up a huge fight.
Real Madrid have reached their best form of the season when it matters the most. They have won in six straight games and are unbeaten in 13 matches in all competitions. Real have failed to score in just one of their last seven away matches in the Champions League.
- Liverpool have scored in just one of their last five matches at Anfield
- Liverpool have scored in eight of their nine matches in the Champions League
- Real Madrid have scored in three of four away matches in the Champions League
- Real Madrid have an average of two goals per game in the Champions League
Liverpool vs Real Madrid Prediction
Liverpool will hope to repeat what they did to Barcelona in 2019 when they overcame a 3-0 defeat in the first leg and thrashed the Blaugrana 4-0. But the Reds are not enjoying the same form this season but nevertheless, they will surely do their best to go through to the semi-finals.
Zidane will hope to field a team capable of withstanding the pressure that will be implemented by their opponents and even steal a goal and make things even more difficult for the hosts.
We think there will be at least two goals in this match.
