Liverpool vs Real Madrid: Predictions
Liverpool have it all to do on Wednesday after the La Liga side’s emphatic 3-1 victory in the first leg last week. Vinicius Junior stole the show in the first leg after scoring a brace to open and close the scoring. Mohamed Salah’s second-half goal will offer the Reds a glimmer of hope but a small one at that.
Zinedine Zidane’s side will bounce into the game on Wednesday after El Classico victory against Barcelona on Saturday to help them close the gap on Atletico Madrid at the top of the table to just one point. Karim Benzema found himself back on the scoresheet after drawing a blank in the first-leg clash against the reds.
Jurgen Klopp’s got back to winning way at home in the Premier League on the weekend after coming from behind to beat Aston Villa at Anfield. Although their previous Champions League home clash in the last 16 against RB Leipzig was held at a neutral venue Liverpool were able to cruise to a 2-0 victory.
Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane both missed the game against Liverpool last week and the El Classico on the weekend. Although there is no update on their pairs fitness yet, the duo’s absence did not affect the Madridistas in either of their two games over the last week.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid: Match Stats
Liverpool have only won one of their last seven games at Anfield which came on the weekend against Villa. Klopp’s side has not kept a clean sheet on Merseyside since 17 January against Manchester United. The Reds have shown some signs of returning to some form as they attempt to earn a spot in the top four, however, Wednesday still remains a huge ask.
Karim Benzema has scored 19 goals in La Liga this season in his 26 appearances. The Frenchman has refound his form of years gone by and he has also managed to make his mark in the Champions League having scoring five goals in his six appearances. Benzema failed to get his name on the scoresheet against Liverpool last week but will be hoping to continue from where he left off on Saturday.
6 April 2021 – Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool – Champions League
26 May 2018 – Liverpool 1-3 Real Madrid – Champions League
4 November 2014 – Real Madrid 1-0 Liverpool – Champions League
22 October 2014 – Liverpool 0-3 Real Madrid – Champions League
10 March 2009 – Liverpool 4-0 Real Madrid – Champions League
25 February 2009 – Real Madrid 0-1 Liverpool – Champions League
Across their six meetings, the wins are shared out at three each. However, Liverpool’s recent record against Madrid is pretty poor with their last defeat coming in the 2018 final which is certainly one they will look to inflict revenge on Madrid for on Tuesday night.
