Real Madrid vs Liverpool Preview
Champions League Round of 16, Wednesday, March 15th, 20:00 (UK)
This tie could’ve been a whole lot different given the way it started at Anfield a couple of weeks ago, Liverpool went two goals ahead inside 15 minutes but were embarrassed by Ancelotti’s Madrid. Vinicius jr. and Karim Benzema bagged braces on either side of an Eder Militao header in a resounding win.
Liverpool’s season has been very underwhelming, they’re out of both cups, struggling to earn a top 4 spot and have the mountainous task of turning a three-goal deficit at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night. Despite how inconsistent they’ve been this season, you can’t write them off yet.
History is with the Spanish side here, they’ve qualified for the next round in 36 of 37 ties where they won the first leg. David Alaba is the only injury doubt heading here for Los Blancos who you’d expect to manage this game with relative ease.
Liverpool have beaten Real Madrid by four goals in this competition before, the 2008/2009 season saw the Reds run out 4-0 victors in the UCL last 16 which is still their heaviest defeat in this competition. Liverpool are priced at 91.00 to win 4-0, it’ll take some performance to replicate that scoreline.
Klopp and Liverpool have not enjoyed going head-to-head with the Spanish giants in recent times. They’ve lost six of the last seven with the other ending level. The Reds have scored just four times in five matches under their current boss. Real Madrid are 1.02 to qualify whilst Liverpool are available at 17.00, which still seems way too short.

Real Madrid vs Liverpool Bet Builder
The pressure is on Liverpool, they’ll need a perfect performance in the Spanish capital. Backing a bet builder based firmly on Liverpool giving this a real good go could be a risk given their season-long performances, but it seems the sensible way to go.
Real Madrid had nine goal kicks in the first leg, they’ll be happy to invite the pressure and will be confident that they can shut Liverpool out. No side has as much experience as Real Madrid in this competition and it’ll be hard to see them make a mess of this one.
Another angle I like the look of is Liverpool throws, they had 24 in at Anfield in that 5-2 thumping. Generally, Liverpool are decent side for throw-ins, they’ve hit this required line in 14 of their 17 games since the return including a whopping 36 at Bournemouth.
Liverpool had nine shots in the first leg, leading 2-0 very early probably didn’t help the cause but of course, it’s a totally different story here. Hitting the required 11 shots in Spain shouldn’t be a massive task given the attacking players the Reds possess. Darwin Nunez, Mo Salah and Cody Gakpo are most likely to start and are all happy to pull the trigger.
If Jurgen Klopp’s side turns up and gives this a good go, the bet builder has a massive chance of cashing. The three selections are priced on the shorter side but they combine for an odds-against play. It might be worth having a small go at some higher lines if you’re tuning in for the match which will hopefully keep things interesting.
- Real Madrid Over 5.5 Goal Kicks
- Liverpool Over 7.5 Throw Ins
- Liverpool Over 10.5 Shots
