Real Madrid face their third final in 10 days. The previous ones he won with solvency. The first before Liverpool by 3-1, the second in the classic 2-1 and now it’s the third. The rival will be Liverpool again and at stake is a pass to the semifinals of the Champions League. Whites have a 3-1 advantage in the first leg, but Zidane he does not trust a ‘red’ team that does not see it as impossible to win 2-0 at Real Madrid.
A team, the white one, that reaches Anfield with the defender in the box. Injury to Lucas Vazquez, That he is lost all season, it is a serious problem for Zidane who for this game cannot count onn Ramos, Varane, Carvajal and Hazard. Without Lucas playing the role of right back, it would be the turn of Odriozola but the Basque generates many doubts in the white coaching staff. Thus, it is not necessary to rule out that Zidane bet on a defense of three or that he changes to Mendy of band and put to Marcelo as headline on the left. One possibility, the latter, which seems to be winning integers to be the alternative if Zidane decides not to put Odriozola in the starting team of Real Madrid.
It seems that in that eleven there will be Ffrom Valverde. The Uruguayan finished the Classic with a strong blow to the sole of his foot that prevented him from training with the group. However, the midfielder is willing to play undercover, so everything indicates that it will be the match in a Madrid that points out that he will play with four in the middle and with Vinicius and Benzema above. Two players who are decisive in the Whites attack and who were a nightmare for Liverpool at Di Stéfano, especially the Brazilian player. A footballer who with spaces is fearsome and it seems that tonight he will have them with a Liverpool turned on the attack.
The English team is entrusted to the miracle for the third consecutive year. It worked for him three against Barcelona when those of Klopp they turned it around to 3-0. They looked for the same strategy last year, when they had to turn a 1-0 against Atlético de Madrid. And they were about to get it, but they ended up being eliminated by the rojiblancos. Liverpool does not recover anyone due to injury and the line-up that Klopp draws should be very similar to the one he formed in Madrid, with the exception of Naby keita, whose position will be for Thiago, Y Firmino that would enter through Diogo Jota.
A duel in style that will lack the warmth and color of the Anfield fans, a card that Liverpool will not have.
