Full Liverpool squad available to face Real Madrid with two new players ruled out

Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League tonight and here’s a look at the full squad expected to be available for Jürgen Klop

Liverpool return to the Champions League tonight against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Reds arrive in the Spanish capital with a 5-2 lead in the first leg. The result came after Jürgen Klopp’s side had taken a 2-0 lead at Anfield.

However, Liverpool also have history on their side, having only once recovered from a European deficit of three goals in the first leg: the famous 4-0 Champions League semi-final win against Barcelona in 2019 at Anfield.

In his press conference on Tuesday evening, Klopp revealed that Stefan Bajcetic is out with a ‘stress response’ hamstring injury, while Jordan Henderson is unavailable due to illness. Thiago Alcantara and Luis Diaz will also miss the Madrid match, while Calvin Ramsay and Arthur Melo are ineligible after being suspended from the club’s Champions League squad after Christmas

.And below is the full Liverpool squad who should be available to take on Carlo Ancelotti’s side barring any late injury concerns.

Goalkeepers: Adrian, Alisson Becker, Caoimhin Kelleher.

Defenders: Andy Robertson, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Kostas Tsimikas, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk.

Midfielders: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Fabinho, Fabio Carvalho, Harvey Elliott, James Milner, Naby Keita.

Real Madrid  vs Liverpool: Prediction, Start Time, TV, Live Stream, Team News, H2H Results, Odds

Iverpool face a formidable challenge to turn around the Champions League Round of 16 tie against Real Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp’s side head to the Santiago Bernabeu and are looking to score at least three goals after a dramatic 5-2 defeat at Anfield last month.

While the Reds’ famous 7-0 win over Manchester United raised hopes of a possible comeback, Saturday’s loss to a relegation-battling Bournemouth side underscored the fragility of Klopp’s side at this moment. Madrid, meanwhile, may be behind Barcelona in La Liga but are the undeniable champions of this competition.

Real Madrid-Liverpool team news

Real Madrid have called up Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy in their matchday squad to take on Liverpool after injury problems put both at risk of missing out. However, Carlo Ancelotti still has to do without David Alaba.

For Liverpool, Joe Gomez, Thiago Alcantara and Luis Diaz are all injured although there are no new concerns.

Prediction Real Madrid vs Liverpool

It wouldn’t be surprising for Liverpool to pack a punch if Klopp’s side could boast goal scoring at their best. However, that leaves the door open at the back and Madrid can be absolutely lethal.
