Liverpool to Win

Reason for tip

The visitors dropped points at Shakhtar Donetsk and RB Leipzig, while they’ve lost four of their last seven visits to English sides in this competition. The Reds have won nine of their last 12 home Champions League games and come into this clash after successive league wins.

However, the Reds scored 16 times across their last five matches in this competition and they’ve conceded only five goals across their last six at home in Europe.

Best Liverpool vs Real Madrid Betting Offers


Turning point for Reds?

An impressive six days for Liverpool saw them claim consecutive wins to nil, closing to within six points of fourth-placed Newcastle after a win at St James’ Park. Now Jurgen Klopp’s side return to European action, aiming to claim revenge for their loss to Real Madrid in last season’s final.

The Reds may have lost out to Real in Paris, but the European champions have only won one of their previous seven away games against English sides in the Champions League (D2 L4). While the visitors were recently crowned world champions, this season ahsn’t exactly gone to plan for them. They trail Barcelona domestically and their record in Europe should offer Liverpool some hope.

Questions hang over Real

On the face of it, Liverpool as the unseeded side – who sit eighth in the Premier League table – should be huge underdogs against Real Madrid. After all, the defending champions won their group to enter the last 16 as one of the favourites to land more European success.

However, Real were able to top a fairly weak group, with almost half of their points coming from two victories over Celtic. The Spanish giants drew at Shakhtar Donetsk and lost 3-2 at Leipzig in that group, ending it with fewer points than Liverpool had in their second-placed finish.

The Reds had a terrible start with their 4-1 loss to Napoli in their opener, but they won five straight games after that to wind up on 15 points. Klopp’s side scored 16 goals across those final six games, so they’ve already proven themselves in Europe this term. Wih their form now turning a corner, Real should be worried about this visit to Anfield.

Gakpo can continue fine run

Liverpool have won nine of their last 12 home matches at home in this competition, claiming a 2-1 win over Ajax and 2-0 wins over Rangers and Napoli in the group stage. They can trouble a Real side who have issues on their travels. The Reds will need to make the most of home advantage in this tie, so look to them to make an impact on Tuesday.

The hosts have shown their scoring touch, while they have slowly got Cody Gakpo up and running in the last week. He’s scored in his last two games, while the former PSV man hit three goals in five Europa League appearances earlier this term. After hitting three in five World Cup appearances, this stage shouldn’t be a problem for him. Back Gakpo to add to his good run with a goal on Tuesday.

The hosts’ should extend their five-game winning run in Europe, while they are good value for another home win. The visitors have notched in their last 12 European games, so back them to score a goal in the defeat, with a 2-1 home win my correct score prediction.
