Liverpool have it all to do in the Champions League this evening against Real Madrid.

The Reds are trying to react to defeat to FC Basel which has left them under pressure ahead of away games at Real Madrid and a home fixture against Basel at Anfield.

Liverpool’s home support will create an extremely loud atmosphere, which could be intimidating for Real Madrid’s stars and it will be interesting to see how they cope over the course of 90 minutes.

Real are the side to beat in the group at the moment after two wins from two games, seven goals scored and just two conceded.

They showed against Ludogorets that they’re vulnerable to fast starts from the opposition, which is most likely how Liverpool will try and attack Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
