Players are out

Both sides are out and we are moments from kick off
09:349 months ago

10 Minutes to go

Just 10 minutes until kick off and the nerves have well and truly set in. 

Whilst football as we know it may for now be gone - this has the potential to be one of the famous nights in Liverpool's rich history

09:299 months ago

Warm Up

The Reds are out and warming up at an empty Anfield
09:249 months ago

Tactics

With a comfortable lead from the first leg Real are likely to sit back and wait for their opportunities to counter attack. 

Liverpool meanwhile will need to be proactive in their approach as they look to overturn a deficit - albeit without conceding themselves. 

09:199 months ago

45 Mins to go

We are just 45 minutes from kick off at Anfield and the atmosphere outside is tantamount. 

A huge night is needed from Liverpool if they are going to progress. 

09:149 months ago

Liverpool reaction

Plenty of experience and energy in the Liverpool midfield, likely to put more pressure on the Real midfielders. 

Diogo Jota and Thiago both interesting options to come off the bench and impact the game if possible.

What's to come

I'll be back when the lineups are announced with more build up, preview, analysis and the all importnat live updates. 
08:549 months ago

Precedent set

Despite the uphill battle, Liverpool do have previous when it comes to European comebacks - experience Klopp will likely be drawing on as the build up intensifies.
08:499 months ago

Fever pitch

Normally a European night of this magnitude would be accompanied by a hostile Anfield atmosphere. 

On this occasion it's not to be however, which will surely further hand the advantage to Madrid. 

08:449 months ago

Predicted Liverpool lineup

XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane. 

Subs: Adrian, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jota, Tsimikas, Davies, N Williams, Shaqiri, Keita, R Williams

Team news

Both sides are missing a plethora of stars for this clash, with Liverpool's long-term absentees still sidelined. 

Real Madrid have had more recent problems to deal with. This week Lucas Vasquez was ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee ligament issue. 

08:349 months ago

European pedigree

This meeting puts together two giants of Europe, with 19 successes in this competition combined - will one club go on to make it 20?
08:299 months ago

Chelsea await

Premier League rivals Chelsea await the winners having overcome FC Porto in their quarter final tie. 

A 2-0 victory or better will be enough for Jurgen Klopp's side, whilst any away goal would complicate matters further. 

08:249 months ago

The scenario

Liverpool will need to recapture European performances of old in order to reach the Champions League semi-finals having fallen way short last week in Madrid. 

The Reds were off the pace from the get go and could perhaps find themselves fortunate to still be in the contest.

Kick-off time

Tonight's crucial Champions League match is set to get underway at 20:00 at Anfield, Liverpool.
