Real Madrid vs Liverpool Preview
Real Heating Up at The Right Time
Los Blancos lost the last time on January 30th at home to Levante and since then posted nine wins and two draws. Seven of those games ended with under 2.5 goals, and in five, Real kept its net intact.
That is the new style of play, characteristic for Zidane’s second reign here. The Spanish titans play tough, defensive-minded, and cautious football, which is, to be honest, completely opposite from the time Ronaldo, Bale, and the company wore its jersey.
At the moment, they have four straight wins, in all of them with two or more goals scored. Most of the opponents during that stretch weren’t some high-profile clubs (Elche, Atalanta, Celta, and Eibar), but still, defeating all presents a major boost before the upcoming challenges.
Reds All-In on UCL
Liverpool officially lost all the chances to defend the EPL title after City’s win this Saturday. So the only place where they can lift a trophy is the Champions League. Furthermore, it could be the only way to reach the Champions League spot for the 2021/22 season because of their current position in the domestic league.
After a period in which Liverpool experienced a lot of frustration and losses, Jurgen Klopp’s crew was solid over the past three games, posting three consecutive triumphs without a goal allowed. At first, they would beat RB Leipzig, 2-0, then Wolves, 0-1, and finally, demolished Arsenal, 0-3.
The last eight matches this team played saw just one side netting, and all of them, apart from the most recent against the Gunners, were under 2.5 goals.
