Can Liverpool pull off the impossible against Real Madrid?

15th March 2023

Liverpool haven't put themselves in the best position as they gear up for their second leg against in the in the UEFA later this week.

Despite going 2-0 ahead in the first leg at , the Reds quickly capitulated, allowing Vinícius to net a brace to equal the score at half-time.

Just minutes after the break, Eder Militão netted to put the side 3-2 up before a double from Karim Benzema made it five goals conceded at Anfield.

Liverpool need a three-goal in the 2nd leg to take the to extra time and four to knock out Madrid.

We've seen Liverpool achieve remarkable feats in this competition before, e.g. in 2005 and in 2019.

Yet another test falls upon the club tonight.

Can Liverpool pull off the impossible against Real Madrid?

They've done it before and they can do it again

If there is one club in Europe that you can bank on pulling out seemingly impossible tasks, it's most likely that your answer will be Liverpool.

The club has a special affinity with the Champions League with the European competition providing some of the greatest moments Reds fans have ever experienced.

As the most successful British team in the competition's history with six titles, Liverpool are the prime side to back in European ties that mere mortal sides will have no chance of winning.

A 1-0 to on the weekend would have hurt players' morale after the spectacular 7-0 victory over last week but the travelling Liverpool fans will certainly make themselves heard in the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Liverpool have bitten off more than they can chew

There comes a time when a task becomes too great, too difficult and just too powerful to overcome.

A 3-0 deficit to an extremely talented and experienced Real Madrid may be that task.

While this current Madrid side may be not the powerhouses they were last year, they certainly showed how to flex their muscles when they embarrassed Liverpool.

Not many sides can go to the Bernabeu and put on a near-perfect performance because that is what Liverpool must do if they want to progress further in the competition.

Losses to the Spanish giants in the and 2018 finals as well as their elimination in the 2020/21 season have certainly given Madrid the upper hand mentally and if this current season is to go by anything, it'll be a tall task for the Reds to grab a massive result.
