Klopp outlines what Liverpool must do to come back vs Real Madrid

Liverpool vs Real Madrid

Liverpool of course faced off with Real Madrid in the first of two Champions League quarter-final legs last week.

The Reds, despite a poor season overall, headed into the tie in decent form both domestically and in Europe, having comfortably dispatched of RB Leipzig in the competition’s previous round.

However, when the two sides faced off in Spain, Los Blancos absolutely dominated Jurgen Klopp and co.

A brace from a very impressive Vinicius Junior, either side of a Marco Asensio strike, handed Zinedine Zidane’s men a comfortable lead heading into tomorrow’s reverse leg.

Mohamed Salah, though, did bag an away goal for Liverpool, handing the English outfit some hope of a comeback.

What Liverpool need to change vs Real Madrid

In turn, when speaking to the media on Tuesday, Jurgen Klopp outlined exactly what he feels his side need to do to complete their latest remarkable European comeback, this time against the Champions League specialists.

Regarding what changes need to be made, Klopp highlighted his side’s poor defending in the first leg, explaining:

“First goal for Madrid was a genius long ball. But the other two goals we didn’t defend well enough. If they have a throw-in 15 yards from goal and there’s no challenge until they score, it makes absolutely no sense. We have to change that.”

Then, when pressed on what Liverpool need to do on Wednesday, the German provided a pretty simple response, simply advising his stars to play as their ‘best selves’:
