Liverpool vs Real Madrid [UCL Final 2021/22]

LIVERPOOL have the chance to avenge their heartbreaking 2018 Champions League Final loss to Real Madrid when two of Europe’s superpowers collide in this year’s quarter-finals.

It’s easy now for Reds fans to be philosophical about that 3-1 loss in Kiev, given they lifted the trophy a year later after beating Spurs then followed it up by ending a three-decade wait for the Premier League title.

But Loris Karius’ two clangers and Gareth Bale’s audacious overhead kick left a deep wound at the time in a game where Jurgen Klopp’s side were probably the better team.

Liverpool now have their opportunity for revenge and they have finally found some form after horror domestic slump that ended their hopes of delivering another league crown.

An impressive 3-0 dismantling of Arsenal at the weekend made it three wins in a row without conceding but a trip to Madrid is a step up in class.

Real were also a team in crisis earlier this campaign but they have now hit their stride, going 11 games without defeat to roar back into the La Liga title race and stay in the hunt for more European glory.

The Bernabeu giants are looking to lift the European Cup for a 14th time and nobody know what it takes win this tournament better than Zidedine Zidane who has ruled Europe four times as a player and manager.
