UEFA Champions League

Checkout Who Real Madrid Will Face Next in the Semi-finals After Tonight's Draw

LIVERPOOL, England -- Spanish Giants, Real Madrid secured its return to the UEFA Champions League semis after a 2-campaign absence by holding the Reds to a 0-0 stalemate Wednesday, protecting a 3-1 lead from the first leg.

The Reds created chance after chance but Salah, Firmino and Mane could find no way past Ex-Chelsea Goalie Thibaut Courtois and a makeshift backline that stifled a front 3 that has endured a campaign of frustration.

A scene of many memorable European comebacks, Anfield lacked the supporters who have so often inspired the Reds in similar situations.

But while the record thirteen-time European champions can look forward to a semis against the Blues, Jurgen Klopp's side last route to a trophy this campaign has now been shut off.

It's quite a comedown for Liverpool, which won the UCL in 2019 - after losing the 2018 finale to Real Madrid - and ended a thirty-year English Premier League drought by winning the PL title by an eighteen point margin in 2020.

Now the Reds is struggling to even make the UCL places, sitting 3 points outside the top 4 with 7 matches to go.
