The visitors are also missing a host of key players with Sergio Ramos, Rafael Varane, Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez, and Eden Hazard all sidelined for the trip to Merseyside.
Liverpool vs Real Madrid Preview
The first leg saw Real Madrid come flying out of the blocks to race into a 2-0 lead against a shellshocked Liverpool, who did respond shortly after the break but Madrid regrouped to score again and take a two-goal advantage into this one.
Even in a game which saw them play extremely well, Zidane’s side conceded a goal and with serious injury problems in the back-four for the Spanish champions, Liverpool will feel they can score the two goals they need to give themselves a chance of progression.
Madrid’s only clean sheet in their last eight games came against basement club Eibar in La Liga, yet at the other end of the pitch the Spanish champions have been in strong form.
Indeed, they have scored in 17 consecutive matches in all competitions and another high scoring game looks on the cards this Wednesday night considering Liverpool have kept just two clean sheets in their last 11 games.at Anfield
