Manchester United Legend Gary Neville has Predicted that Liverpool will crash out of the UEFA Champions League ahead of their quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Liverpool will host the Spanish champions at  Anfield looking to overturn a 3-1 loss in the first leg of the encounter.

However, Liverpool have been poor at home in recent months, with just two wins at Anfield in their last nine meetings there in all competitions.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won their weekend Premier League clash 2-1 against Aston Villa, Neville believes Liverpool’s injury-time victory against Villa suggests that they will be unable to pull off the rest they require to knock Zinedine Zidane’s side out of Europe.

Speaking after the win over Aston Villa, Neville said to Sky Sports : “They won the title last season and have had an exceptional three years, now that they’ve got the chance to get into that top four, you couldn’t say it’s a priority over the Champions League.

“But the reality of it is that from where they’ve been, and they’ve had some difficult moments in these last few months, that [top four] would be a good result at the end of this season for Liverpool. I think that [beating Aston Villa] was a big moment for them.

“They were really poor in Madrid in midweek, and they’ve given themselves a lot to do and I’m not sure they have got it in them to do it because at Anfield they’ve not been great – even against Aston Villa, they’re scrambling to win late on.

“With a crowd in, it’s a different story, but I think they’re going to go out of the Champions League.

“I might be wrong, but it would seem now that they’ve got the top four to concentrate on. If they get into the top four at the end of it, it would be a half-decent result for them.”
