News Updates: SportsTiger App

Preview:
Liverpool host Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League quarter finals. Real Madrid had produced a remarkable performance in the first leg of the match and had won the game 3-1. Liverpool will have to nullify the 2-goal deficit and then focus on winning the game. A tough task ahead of them but we are up for stellar action and entertainment. The match is slated to begin at 12:30 AM (IST).

Analysis:
Liverpool succumbed to a 1-3 defeat at the hands of Spanish giants, Real Madrid.  Mohammad Salah was the lone goal scorer for Liverpool and had scored at the 51st minute. Though Liverpool had the ball most of the time, they ended up on the losing side because of the very fewer number of shots they had taken. They had taken 7 shots out of which only 1 was on target. Liverpool will rejoice a little because of the little momentum they received after they won 2-1 against Aston Villa in their previous Premier League game.

The Los Blancos proved to be quite deadly and very dominating in the first leg which they won 3-1. Vinicius Junior netted a brace and Marco Asensio scored one goal to seal off the game for Real Madrid. However, the game at Anfield might be a tricky and challenging one, and Real Madrid need to give their best shot to win this game. Real Madrid would also be high on confidence as they recently won the El Classico, 2-1.
