Betting prediction: Real Madrid 1-1 Liverpool

Advertisement

This fixture screams a draw for the simple fact that both sides are capable of turning it on when they’re on form in a manner that few can cope with. Cagey first-legs are a normal occurrence in knockout competitions, and neither side would probably be terribly disappointed with a draw considering the quality on offer and ability to win it outright in the second leg.

Goals Scored: Under 2.5

This is an incredibly even contest in all respects when the two sides are compared. Moreover, both have the capability of putting any side in the world to the sword when they’re on song, and that could be one of the key reasons why this may end up being relatively cagey. An away goal would do wonders for Liverpool and their Champions League form should put them in good standing to find one, but keeping a clean sheet at Madrid is never an easy task. A draw would not be unexpected.

Correct Score: 1-1

It’s never easy to predict a score, but you just get the feeling that this one would not be all that surprising. Truthfully, a 1-0 to either side would hardly shock either, but neither side should run out winners here by a multiple-goal margin. Real Madrid will want to limit the chances Liverpool has at securing an away goal, while the Reds will look to give themselves every chance in the second leg. There is likely to be a bit of underlying caution from both sides and that should play out on the scoreline.

Real Madrid vs Liverpool: Match preview

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane was in a complementary mood when he spoke to the press in his pre-match presser before Los Blancos host Liverpool in the Spanish capital on Tuesday evening. Looking ahead to the quarter-final clash, Zidane labeled the Reds as a complete team; an aspect that must be his tactical focus on the night.

The former France maestro is correct in his assessment of Liverpool, a side who come into their Champions League clash on the back of a 3-0 clinic on display against a poor Arsenal at the Emirates. As Zidane commented, Liverpool is so much more than just the front-three they are able to field, and that was especially highlighted against the Gunners by the performances of both Thiago and Fabinho.

This will be a tough task for Madrid, who have revitalised their season after a period where many had written them off in La Liga, and by extension, in Europe as well. Their balance should be discussed in equal measure to their opponents as well, and even though it is ageing, their own midfield trio is capable of dispatching dominant performances when they are in the mood. This is the area of the pitch where the match is sure to be won or lost for either side, and to tap into the exceptional level of experience of Luka Modrić, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro will be vital for Zidane if he is to push the club to another deep run in Europe.

The absence of Sergio Ramos and his immeasurable contributions to the club in the Champions League over the years after the faithful servant picked up an injury on international duty and is probably the one key weakness in this Madrid team going into Tuesday’s showdown at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. The spotlight may be on Casemiro for this reason, much like his fellow Brazilian and midfield counterpart Fabinho at the other end for similar reasons. It should prove to be a tight affair between two sides more than capable of lifting yet another European trophy.

Diogo Jota deserves to lead the line against Real Madrid

Liverpool’s front-three has been the toast of the town for the Reds in recent seasons. The dynamic trio of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mané has been one of the most efficient and effective attacking trios both in England and Europe alike, but few maybe would have expected someone to come in and potentially shake it up in the way that Diogo Jota has this season.

After being such a catalyst for Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves, Jota made the leap from being a talismanic figure to a rotational option at Liverpool at first. Fast-forward to the current landscape, and the Portuguese international is in scintillating form for both club and country, while arguably being Liverpool’s best attacking option at the minute. And it is a good headache for Jürgen Klopp to have, one that paid dividends at the weekend against Arsenal when the native of the Massarelos section of Porto came off the bench and bagged a brace against the Gunners.

Liverpool looked an even more dangerous side when he was introduced at the Emirates, and when deployed centrally as a false nine/mobile centre-forward, it gives the Reds a fluidity in the attack that is even more dangerous to cope with than when Firmino is deployed. But the possibility of all four attacking players featuring in the same matchday XI has not been ruled out by Klopp, and tactically, it could very well be made to work. Many may forget that Firmino shone at TSG Hoffenheim as a creative attacking midfielder during his spell in Sinsheim, and deploying all four in the xI would still leave space for a combination of Thiago, Fabinho or Gini Wijnaldum to be utilised in a balanced midfield pair. Whether or not Klopp will turn to such a change on Tuesday is unknown, and probably unlikely, but what is not in question is how important Jota has become to Liverpool in such a short space of time.

Real Madrid team news vs Liverpool

Zinedine Zidane will be without the ever-stalwart Sergio Ramos after the Spanish international picked up a knock while featuring for La Roja. It is a big blow for Real Madrid against a dangerous Liverpool outfit.

Eden Hazard, Daniel Carvajal, and Federico Valverde are all also unavailable for the former France maestro.

There is a boost, however, with both Casemiro and Toni Kroos available. The Brazilian is back after serving his one-match suspension, and Kroos is once again fully fit.

Liverpool team news vs Real Madrid

There are six guaranteed absentees when Liverpool jet-set to Spain, though Jürgen Klopp likely will not make many – if any – changes from the side that battered Arsenal at the weekend.

Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi, and Caoimhin Kelleher all remain out for the Reds.

Diogo Jota’s scintillating form puts him in line for a start here after Roberto Firmino was pressed back into service at the weekend.
