Liverpool will be hoping for another memorable European night at Anfield this week when Real Madrid come to town.


The Spaniards have a 3-1 lead from the last round of Champions League fixtures, meaning Liverpool must score at least two if they have any chance of progressing to the semi-finals.

Of course, the Merseysiders have vast experience when it comes to overturning first-leg losses, and it was only two years ago that a 4-0 victory over Barcelona at Anfield saw Jurgen Klopp's men qualify for the final in Madrid.

Yet with no fans in attendance this year, the task is even more challenging, especially with a fragile defence that were regularly exposed at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano last week.

Real's midfield trio of Toni Kroos, Luca Modric and Casemiro ran the show in the Spanish capital, and stopping them doing so again at Anfield will be Jurgen Klopp's chief concern heading into the second leg. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Liverpool v Real Madrid on TV and online.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Real Madrid

It's a clash that pits Liverpool's superb Anfield record in Europe against the class and nouse of this experienced Madrid team.

The Reds got back to winning at home on Saturday, the same day Real showed their ability to close out the big occasion and come away with the huge result against Barcelona. The visitors do have a hosts of injuries at present and the midfield trio will need to be at the top of their game once again if they're to get that all-important result.

It should be a tight and tense affair that could be decided by the odd goal, but Madrid's experience might just see them through at Anfield,

Our prediction: Liverpool 1-0 Real Madrid (10/1 at bet365)
