Liverpool have a huge mountain to climb against Real Madrid tonight if they are to reach the Champions League semi-finals.

Los Blancos are currently enjoying their best form of the season, comfortably beating the Reds 3-1 in the first leg before completing a Clasico double over Barcelona at the weekend.

With no fans allowed inside Anfield, Liverpool's players need all the confidence they can muster. Registering a first win — and first open-play goals — at home in 2021 could not have come at a better time in the Premier League victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

With the soon-to-be-dethroned Premier League champions three points off the top-four pace, lifting the Champions League trophy in May could be their only ticket back into the competition next season.

A semi-final against Chelsea is up for grabs, and the prospect of an all-English last-four tie could just spur Liverpool on to another memorable European comeback.

Date, time and venue

Liverpool vs Real Madrid is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off tonight - Wednesday, April 14, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Anfield due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

Prediction: Liverpool 1-2 Real Madrid

Liverpool looked slightly back to their former selves against Aston Villa but still not a match for Real Madrid. An early goal will be key for them, but I can see the visitors killing the tie with an away goal.
