Real Madrid will face Liverpool in the Champions League Quarterfinals. The British side have been vulnerable this season and have suffered many injuries, just like Madrid.

While Liverpool are not as strong as they’ve been in recent seasons, they will put all their focus on these Quarterfinals given that their chances of competing for the Premier League title have vanished. They’re a strong team offensively and Madrid will have to work hard and play with composure if they want to stop them.

Keep in mind that, even as tough as the Champions League is, the European competition represents the most likely option for Madrid to win a trophy this season now that they’re six points behind Atletico in La Liga. Real Madrid have lacked consistency all season long but they’re still capable of winning five games, which is what it takes to conquer the Champions League now they’ve reached the Quarterfinals.

The winner of this tie will face either Chelsea or Porto in the Semifinals.

Real Madrid will likely be forced to play their home match away from Madrid —just like Atletico against Chelsea in the Round of 16— due to the travel restrictions for British people because of Covid-19.
