Our prediction: Real Madrid v Liverpool

This is the first time these sides have clashed since the 2018 Champions League final and Liverpool will certainly be out for revenge – but don’t be surprised if Klopp tries to keep things tight in this first leg.

The likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will be relied upon to carry the Reds attacks forward, while Klopp will pray his creaky defence holds out.

Real have the firepower to frighten any team but it will likely be Luka Modric who is the biggest influence in this game. If the Reds can pin the Croatian down then half their task will be solved. Still, coming away from the Bernabeu with even an away goal would be something to grasp onto.

Our prediction: Real Madrid 2-1 Liverpool (9/1 at bet365)
