Predicted Liverpool XI to play Real Madrid - Rodgers to pack midfield

Here is the possible Liverpool team to take on Real Madrid in Spain.

Liverpool will have to work extremely hard away to Real Madrid to prevent another defeat in the Champions League this week.

The Reds were outplayed at Anfield as goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema (2) were enough to help Carlo Ancelotti’s side to a 3-0 win.

Liverpool go into this game low on confidence after they were beaten over the weekend by Newcastle United, unable to back up their victory in the League Cup against Swansea City last week.

Rodgers could make a couple of changes for the match, but Liverpool are going to need to work hard as Real Madrid are likely to see plenty of the ball during the game, which means plenty of work for the Reds out of possession.

Here’s the side Rodgers may select and hand the task of trying to beat Real Madrid in the Bernabeu.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Sterling, Lucas, Henderson, Gerrard, Coutinho, Balotelli
