Analysis

Real Madrid have a great record in the UEFA Champions League in the past few seasons and are known to step up their game in the knock-out stages. On the other hand, Liverpool seem to have found their purple patch yet again since the return from the injury of Diogo Jota. However, against an in-form Karim Benzema, the reigning Premier League champions will have a tough task ahead of them and may feel the added pressure of turning it around.
