    In a thrilling Round of 16 UEFA Champions League first-leg matchup on Tuesday, Liverpool will face off against the current champions Real Madrid.

    On Tuesday, an exciting UEFA Champions League Round of 16 First Leg matchup will pit Liverpool against the current champions Real Madrid.

    The Reds will play for the first time since the 2022 UEFA Champions League final when they take on Los Merengues at Anfield.

    After defeating the English Premier League team 1-0 in the final in May 2022 thanks to a goal from Vinicius Junior, Real Madrid donated the 2022 trophy to their museum.

    Jürgen Klopp, the manager of the Reds, stated that “we need to play two magnificent games to go through.” “Madrid still has a chance and doesn’t need to play particularly well. I’m overjoyed that we can play this game right now as opposed to a few weeks ago. I anticipate Anfield to be alert. Come on, let’s go again.”

    Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said: “The team is in good shape, motivated to succeed as last year, and aware that there is still a second game to play. We are thrilled to participate in this tournament once more. The Paris final from the previous season brought back fond memories. A fair game was played.”

    Luis Diaz and Thiago Alcantara of Liverpool will be unable to face Real Madrid. Darwin Nunez has a shoulder issue, and Ibrahima Konate has a hamstring injury, making both players questionable for the Reds in the forthcoming match.

    The Merseyside club match will not feature Toni Kroos, Ferland Mendy, Aurelien Tchouameni, or Mariano Diaz of Real Madrid. Due to exhaustion, French striker Karim Benzema is also regarded as questionable.
