PHOTO: Real Madrid players on their way to Liverpool for Champions League clash

Real Madrid stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Alvaro Arbeloa and Javier Hernandez, are on their way to Liverpool for Wednesday’s Champions League game.

The big times are truly back at Liverpool as they prepare to host the mighty Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Reds will entertain the reigning European champions at Anfield in their third Group B clash on Wednesday.

Madrid will head into the match as huge favourites and with a team that is massively superior to that of Liverpool.

The Madrid players are on their way to England, with former Liverpool defender Alvaro Arbeloa posting the following photo on social networking site Twitter this morning.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side have won both of their Champions League games so far this season. Los Blancos edged past Bulgarian champions Ludogorets Razgrad 2-1 away from home last time out following a 5-1 home victory over FC Basel at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Liverpool, though, have stuttered in the Champions League. Brendan Rodgers’s side opened their campaign with a 2-1 home win against Ludogoret before suffering a 1-0 away defeat to Basel.
