Real Madrid CF
Real Madrid has had a better campaign in Europe this season than in the domestic competitions. They topped their group and are almost through to the quarterfinals. In seven UEFA Champions League games this season, Real Madrid has only lost once, and they remain unbeaten at home in this competition. Goals have not been scarce for Carlo Ancelotti’s team, with 20 goals scored in seven UCL games.
Liverpool’s hopes of playing in the Champions League next season through a UCL winning spot are fading away. They have struggled in the league, but the Champions League group stage was not difficult for Jurgen Klopp’s men as they finished in second position behind Napoli by only a goals difference. Liverpool is just one goal shy of Real Madrid’s tally of 20 goals in the Champions League this season.

Real Madrid vs Liverpool Predictions
Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.73 (8/11)
This season, Liverpool and Real Madrid produced one of the highest-scoring games in the UEFA Champions League. Both teams have deadly attackers, and it’s difficult for either side to get a clean sheet, even in La Liga and Premier League. Like their run in the UEFA Champions League last year, Real Madrid is prioritizing attack over defense, and we expect to see another high-scoring game with goals at both ends.
Real Madrid’s attack is good, but they have kept only one clean sheet in their last five games, and Liverpool has enough quality to grab a goal in this game. Backing both teams to score and this game to end with three goals or more is a very valuable bet.
Real Madrid to Win @ 2.38 (11/8)
Liverpool’s performance against Bournemouth wasn’t good for a team looking to overturn a three-goal deficit against Real Madrid. The Reds are very poor at the back and lose the ball very often in midfield, and this is where Real Madrid is very efficient. Carlo Ancelotti already knows a thing about throwing away a three-goal lead, and Real Madrid would be looking to end this tie very quickly. Not much has changed from the first leg a few days ago, and the Whites should beat Liverpool again.
Vinicius Jr to Score Anytime @ 2.75 (7/4)
The Real Madrid forward has five goals in four matches against Liverpool, and he was decisive in the first leg, grabbing a brace in the first half. Vinicius Jr scored a beautiful goal in the win over Espanyol last week, and he is Real Madrid’s leading top scorer in the UEFA Champions League. Backing Vini Jr to score against Liverpool is an underrated option in the Champions League sportsbook.
Real Madrid vs Liverpool Team News
Real Madrid has only David Alaba ruled out for this game, and Carlo Ancelotti is expected to lineup in his usual 4-3-3. Ferland Mendy is back in the team and could start ahead of Eduardo Camavinga.
Thiago Alcantara, Luis Diaz, and Joe Gomez are sidelined for Liverpool, with their return dates set for April. Jurgen Klopp is likely to start his attacking trio of Mohammed Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Cody Gakpo, but he can add someone from a now-reserve duo of Firmino and Jota.
