Liverpool will aim to pull off another memorable upset when they welcome Real Madrid to Anfield for the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final tonight. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side will have to overturn a 3-1 deficit after Vinicius Jr exposed the flaws in Liverpool’s defence, capitalising on some exquisite midfield play by Toni Kroos, in a relatively one-sided affair. 

Mohamed Salah’s away goal will give the Reds some much-needed hope, though, as will an upturn in form domestically. Liverpool have now won their last three Premier League games in succession as they seek to secure European football for next season. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold endured a difficult night in the first leg in Valdebebas but was the hero last weekend, scoring a brilliant last-gasp winner against Aston Villa in a 2-1 victory at Anfield

Prediction

Despite Liverpool’s tendency to rise to the big occasion, their long-standing injury issues and lack of confidence may mean another heroic comeback is beyond them. With the Reds’ defence decidedly vulnerable, Madrid will always be dangerous and a goal might yet be enough to clinch the tie on aggregate. Liverpool 2-1 Madrid (3-4 agg.)
