REAL REVENGE: Liverpool draw Real Madrid in UEFA Champions League

 

A repeat of the 2018 final lies ahead for Jürgen Klopp as his Liverpool side will face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final.

The Reds lost that final in Kyiv 3-1 with the game marred by goalkeeping errors from Loris Karius.

Gareth Bale scored twice to sink the Reds in their first Champions League final since 2007.

Mohamed Salah was forced off after being wrestled to the ground by Real captain Sergio Ramos.

It'll be interesting to see how motivated Salah might be to right the wrong of that final when he had to leave the game early.

 

Repeating history?

 

The winners of the tie will go on to face either Porto or Chelsea in the semi-final.

Liverpool need to beat Real Madrid, but they've met Chelsea several times in the UEFA Champions League before.

It evokes memories of 2005 when Rafa Benitez's team advanced to the final in Istanbul where they eventually lifted their fifth European Cup.

The final this year just happens to be at that very stadium - the Ataturk - where Steven Gerrard hoisted the Champions League high.

Liverpool were 3-0 down at half-time in that game but went on to win the game in a miraculous turnaround that seen them score three times in six minutes.

Dates for Liverpool's games with Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League

 

As it stands, the Reds will travel to Madrid in the first leg in early April.

Currently, the game is set to be played on either Tuesday 6th or Wednesday 7th April 2021.

Liverpool will welcome Real Madrid to Anfield a week later in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final.

This is all dependent on coronavirus restrictions of course, with the potential for games to be moved to a neutral ground as the Reds did in the last round against RB Leipzig.

Should Liverpool advance, they'll face either Porto or Chelsea with the second leg of that tie also being at Anfield.
