Tonight we will witness one of the biggest matches in Europe. Real Madrid hosts Liverpool in the ¼ finals of the Champions League.
Zidane’s team is ready with few injured players
As you may know, Real Madrid will play against Liverpool without Sergio Ramos. The captain of the team felt bad during the international break. After a return, Ramos found out that he got injured again. The captain of the team will miss a few games in April. It seems that Ramos will miss Liverpool’s clash in Madrid and Liverpool too. At the same time, Los Blancos will be without a captain against Barcelona in La Liga game. Ramos is the biggest problem for Real Madrid. There are few options that Zidane can use in the game against Liverpool. The main strategy will be playing Varane and Nacho in the center defense. As you may know, Zidane gave a rest to Varane against Eibar so French player will be 100% fit tonight.
Injuries in the team of Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool’s position in the Premier League is not good. Team is playing with the main defenders and that’s why they lost so many points in the domestic league. At the same time, Liverpool is not in the top-four. It means that Liverpool has to fight against Tottenham, West Ham and Chelsea to get into the top-four. If they lose a few more games in the Premier League, it may lead to Europa League qualification, not Champions League spot next season.
Jurgen Klopp is still very optimistic as he believes in the attacking line. Mane and Salah will be ready to dominate the defense of Real Madrid. Keep in mind that Liverpool played against Real Madrid in 2018. It was the final of the Champions League and Zidane’s side won the title. Klopp’s team has a chance to play again with Los Blancos and qualify in the next round.
