On Tuesday, starting at 9:00 p.m., Real Madrid and Liverpool will meet at the Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium in Valdebebas, in what will be the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie.
Real Madrid comes to the game with good results. After eliminating Atalanta in the round of 16, they beat Celta 1-3 in Balaídos and last Saturday they beat Éibar at home 2-0. In addition, Atlético’s defeat in Seville has allowed them to get only 3 points behind the colchoneros and they have re-engaged in the fight for the league title.
The key player in the Whites’ good results is undoubtedly Karim Benzema, whose scoring streak is record-breaking. In the Spanish League he has scored in the last 6 games he has played and in 2 of them twice. And in the Champions League, he has also scored 3 goals in his last 2 games. His streak of consecutive games scoring is spectacular.
Liverpool is not the one of the past seasons, that team that dominated the Premier with authority and that won the Champions League two years ago. Their forwards are the same, but the team no longer has the same physical strength as then and Klopp’s approaches are not surprising as before. In the Premier League, he will have to fight a lot to be among the top 5 positions that entitle him to play in European competitions next season. Doing a good job in the Champions League is almost the only thing left for the Reds to “save” the season.
A priori, Liverpool starts as a slight favorite to get the victory, according to the bookmakers. Even so, if you want to bet on the white victory, you will like to know that Betfair is offering its new users the possibility of betting their first euro on Real Madrid at a super share of 75.
