Bold formation choice: Predicted Liverpool lineup v Real Madrid

Liverpool lineup against Real Madrid this week and the Reds have a mountain to climb. A woeful first half in Madrid has left Jürgen Klopp’s men with a two goal deficit to overturn. Here is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face Real Madrid:

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

The Brazilian probably could’ve done more to stop Aston Villa’s opener at the weekend but we will always back him in big games.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Scouser in our team did it again at the weekend, turning up when we needed him most. He could well make the difference this week.

Centre back: Nat Phillips

The Bolton Baresi had his inexperience exposed in the first leg, hopefully he’s learned his lesson.

Centre back: Ozan Kabak

The Turkish centre back looked slow in Madrid, he could make a name for himself with a strong performance in the second leg.

Left back: Andy Robertson

The flying Scotsman can pull out a relentless performance when we need it, we just need him to get forward regularly.

Centre midfield: Fabinho

The Brazilian will need to keep the midfielders around him pressing, we need a leader.

Centre midfield: Thiago

The Spaniard is a Barcelona boy at heart, beating Madrid would mean the world to him.

Right wing: Mo Salah

The Egyptian King could be auditioning or he could be out for revenge. Either is fine with us as long as he performs.

Striker: Diogo Jota

Jürgen Klopp going for a 4-2-4 could help stifle the supply to the Real Madrid midfield, much like we saw at Manchester City.

Striker: Roberto Firmino

Bobby had a better game at the weekend, a promising sign heading into this massive tie.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

The Senegal forward was rested against Aston Villa, he should be fighting fit for this comeback.
