Liverpool vs Real Madrid predicted lineup, team news, Injury update, and prediction UEFA Champions League 

Liverpool will look to overturn a two-goal deficit when they host Real Madrid in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie at Anfield on Wednesday.

Real Madrid dominated the Reds in the first leg and capped off a glorious week with a 2-1 win over bitter rivals Barcelona in El Clasico.

Los Blancos have been in great form and are favourites to make it to the semi-finals over Liverpool, whose season is starting to get increasingly forgettable.

meanwhile, Liverpool came back from a goal down to defeat Aston Villa 2-1 in the Premier League. A comeback against an in-form Real Madrid in the second leg will require much more.

They have also been poor at home of late and their win against Villa was their first at Anfield since December 16.
