Liverpool vs Real Madrid Preview
Liverpool had one hell of a season. If they win the UCL finals, it could easily be the most successful campaign for the Reds in the new century, and it would cement Jurgen Klopp’s status as one of the best managers in the history of soccer.
The Reds have already won two finals, the EFL Cup and the FA Cup, and they are after another trophy. At the moment, the team from Anfield has been without a loss since early March, once they suffered a defeat at home to Inter, but they already beat the Italian champs in the first leg, securing enough of an advantage to advance to the next round.
When looking at their road games, L’Pool didn’t lose in the past 17 trips away from home, recording 15 wins and two draws, which is impressive. In six of the past eight, they scored two or more goals, but in the same games, they conceded a goal as well.
Needless to say, all those meetings finished with over 2.5 scores. Overall, Liverpool is one of the most exciting teams to watch this year, and the majority of their contests ended with at least three goals.
Real Madrid re-captured the La Liga title, and they have been very happy about it. On the other side, there is another opportunity for trophies opening, which is to win their 14th European crown. That would only increase the gap between them and all the other rivals, proving that Los Blancos are the untouchable franchise in the soccer world.
Their incredible finish of the game against Manchester City will be remembered forever because there weren’t many comebacks in the injury time. Carlo Ancelotti has a very stubborn group of players at their disposal, and they simply don’t quit, regardless of the result and the circumstances.
Real’s performances away from Bernabeu were exciting to watch until the last two road games, which ended with under 2.5 goals. Six in a row saw three or more scores, four over 3.5 hits. Just one during that stretch didn’t end with both teams netting.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Prediction
These two teams play enjoyable soccer, with lots of goals. While on one side, Liverpool likes to dominate and to pressure throughout 90 minutes, Real has a different, more discreet playing style but is equally efficient. As you saw, there aren’t many games in the UCL this season in which Los Blancos haven’t scored at least a pair of goals. The same goes for the Reds.
That’s why we pick both teams to score here. It is noticeable that in the recent few events, Liverpool’s defense isn’t playing its best game, while on the other side, Real had problems in the backline throughout the entire campaign.
Given that the respective attacks are much better than the rival’s defenses, at least one goal on both ends sounds like the most logical solution here.
