Preview: Real Madrid vs. Liverpool

On Tuesday night, two of the most successful teams in European Cup history will meet in the Spanish capital, as Real Madrid hosts Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final. Madrid, who have won the competition 13 times, will be hoping to gain an edge at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium ahead of the rematch on April 14 at Anfield. Madrid is the most successful team in European Cup history, having won the competition 13 times, including four times in the last seven years. However, they have been eliminated in the round of 16 in both of the last two years, losing to Ajax and Manchester City, respectively.
At the start of the season, Zinedine Zidane’s team was not considered one of the favorites for this competition, but given their track record of success at this stage, it is difficult to dismiss them.

Preview: Real Madrid vs. Liverpool

Los Blancos did not perform well in the group stages of this season’s competition, winning just three of their six Group B matches, but they still managed to finish first in the section with ten points.
In the round of 16, they faced talented Italian side Atalanta BC, but it was a relatively routine tie for Zidane’s side, who won 1-0 away from home in the first leg before winning 3-1 in the Spanish capital to advance to the final eight of the competition on a 4-1 aggregate scoreline.
Madrid has struggled this season, but they have won nine of their last 11 games in all competitions, including a 2-0 win over Eibar on Saturday afternoon that put them within three points of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid, who play Sevilla on Sunday night. Provided that they will host Barcelona in the league next weekend before heading to Anfield for the second leg of their European Cup quarter-final on April 14, Zidane’s side is in for a busy time of the season.
Los Blancos defeated Liverpool 3-1 in the 2017-18 Champions League final, as well as home and away in the group stages of the 2014-15 tournament; however, the Reds did win in Madrid in 2009, with Yossi Benayoun scoring in the round of 16 to give the visitors a 1-0 victory. Madrid has won eight and lost five of their previous 13 two-legged knockout ties with English teams, and had won three in a row before the defeat to Man City last season; the Spanish giants will be full of trust heading into Tuesday’s match, but they will be wary of a Liverpool team that appears to have recovered from a tough start to the season.

Preview: Real Madrid vs. Liverpool

On Saturday evening, Liverpool put in one of their best performances of the season, beating Arsenal 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium, with Diogo Jota scoring twice. The Reds are now in fifth place, just two points behind the top four, and they seem to be back on track, having won three consecutive games in all competitions. Jurgen Klopp’s side lost at home to Atalanta in the Champions League group stages this season, but they still finished first in the division, with 13 points from six games against Atalanta, Ajax, and FC Midtjylland.
The Reds, like Madrid, were matched against dangerous opponents in the round of 16, but the tale was close to Zidane’s, with the Reds defeating RB Leipzig 2-0 at home and away to advance to the final eight of Europe’s premier competition. There is no doubt that the Merseyside club has had a frustrating season after failing to retain their Premier League crown, but finishing in the top four and winning the Champions League will be considered a fruitful campaign.
Liverpool has won 15 of their last 23 European matches, but they have only won two of their last 12 against Spanish opposition, suffering eight defeats in the process. Only Real Madrid (13) and AC Milan (seven) have won more European Cups than Liverpool, who are tied with Bayern Munich for the most with six, just ahead of Barcelona, who have won the trophy five times. Klopp’s side lost 4-2 on aggregate to Atletico Madrid in the 2019-20 Champions League last-16 round, losing 1-0 in Madrid before losing 3-2 at Anfield in the second leg a month later.
The visitors were lacking in motivation when they lost 1-0 at home to Fulham on March 7, but they have been in excellent form since the international break, and their success at Arsenal on Saturday was the ideal warm-up for a trip to Madrid.
