Jamie Redknapp has advised Liverpool how to get the better of Real Madrid at Anfield in the Champions League on Wednesday.
And it is a very simple advice.
‘You have to look at Sterling because he is the stand-out player’, he told The Daily Mail when asked how Liverpool can win the Group B clash. ‘If Liverpool can get him on the ball, he will frighten any defender.
‘But the way Liverpool have been defending this season, I don’t think they will keep a clean sheet. The only way they can beat Madrid is to match them in attack and out-score them’.
So essentially Liverpool need to score more than Madrid to win...
But can it happen? As Redknapp says, Liverpool are unlikely to keep a clean sheet against a Madrid side who have been banging in the goals for fun.
Cristiano Ronaldo is on fire both in La Liga and in the Champions League, and there are a few others in Carlo Ancelotti’s side who can destroy Liverpool’s defence.
However, Liverpool do have firepower of their own. Despite being just 19 years of age, Raheem Sterling could prove to be a handful for the Madrid defence.
