Predicted Liverpool XI to play Real Madrid - Key changes in defence and midfield

Here's the potential Liverpool side to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for a much more convincing display against Real Madrid than his side could manage against QPR.

Liverpool were fortunate to take the points away from Loftus Road but attention now turns to bringing down the current European champions at Anfield.

It won’t be easy against the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Toni Kroos, but the Reds need to respond after they were beaten by FC Basel in their last game, which leaves them in a fight for second place.

Liverpool need their higher profile players to stand up and be counted in this game because the Reds need to be at their very best and put Los Blancos under pressure from the first whistle.

Liverpool have the home advantage for this game, which means they should relish the loud and hostile environment the Kop will help to create on the evening.

Here’s the potential eleven players that Liverpool could go with for the game.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Lovren, Enrique, Sterling, Henderson, Gerrard, Lucas, Lallana, Balotelli
