The preview of Liverpool vs. real Madrid

Liverpool and Real Madrid meet again on Tuesday at Anfield for a first leg of the Champions League round of 16 with an air of revenge for the Reds, after their defeat in the 2022 final and the incidents at the Stade de France, while the Eintracht Frankfurt receives Napoli.

The match may bring back two bad memories for Liverpool fans. In sports, the English will seek to erase the affront after conceding the victory to the Madrid team last May (1-0), which deprived the club of a seventh European title.

The Reds, who are in a difficult position in the Premier League (8th), hope to confirm in the Champions League that they have straightened their course after two consecutive league victories, the last one in Newcastle (0-2) at the weekend.

On the other hand, the fans of the English club also hope to take advantage of the arrival of the European champion to leave behind the trauma of the serious tensions that occurred before the kick-off of the last final.

The wounds are still open in Liverpool, where they still remember the scenes of chaos experienced in the vicinity of the stadium in Saint-Denis.

“We recently played that final, in Paris (at the Stade de France), and I hadn’t seen it since then, until this weekend,” Liverpool’s German coach Jurgen Klopp acknowledged Monday.
