Now Look up at Predicted Lineups for the Massive Clash Liverpool will host Real Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday night knowing that a victory by at least two goals is needed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League semifinals. Last week, Los Blancos won 3-1 at home against Liverpool. As a result, we should foresee another high-scoring match between these two European giants in midweek.
Jurgen Klopp is likely to line up his side in a 4-3-3 formation once more, instructing his players to keep possession of the ball and build clear-cut opportunities in the final third to win the game. They must, though, be mindful of the danger of getting caught on the table.
Zinedine Zidane will also use a 4-3-3 formation, instructing his players to absorb all of the pressure to catch Liverpool’s defenders off balance on the break. Los Blancos could go for Trent Alexander-Arnold once more, and Vinicius Junior could be used to get in behind him on the big fields.
