Liverpool will return to action in the UEFA Champions League tomorrow to play their second-leg Round of 16 encounter against Spanish Giants Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Last time out, the Reds suffered an embarrassing 5-2 defeat to Real Madrid despite playing at their very home ground. The Anfield Giants obviously have very little chance of progressing to the next stage of the competition but they will be hoping to put up a good fight against the Los Blancos.
Well, in today's article, I will be sharing two things Liverpool needs to do to stand a chance of progressing to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals this season. Let's take a look.
1, Keeping Vinicius Jnr Quiet In The Game.
I know many fans might say that Vinicius Jnr is just one of Real Madrid's many threats in the game and focusing mainly on him could give room for other players to perform against Liverpool. Well, looking back at Real Madrid's previous matches against Liverpool, Vinicius Jnr has always been a threat to the Reds. It is either the Brazilian International is scoring goals, providing assists, or making himself a nuisance in Liverpool's defensive area. Jurgen Klopp's men definitely have to keep him quiet in the game to be able to defeat this Real Madrid side.
2, Converting Every Opportunity That Comes Their Way.
It will be very essential for Liverpool to progress to the next round of the competition this season. Real Madrid aren't a very strong defensive side as they often concede goals to attacking-minded teams. Liverpool will have to be very prolific in front of goal just as they were against Manchester United in their 7-0 win in the competition.
