Liverpool vs Real Madrid

Liverpool require a footballing miracle to keep their dreams alive and while they are past masters at getting them, especially in this competition, who knows which version of Jurgen Klopp's side will turn up when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Reds' season of inconsistently was perfectly illustrated in their last two games. A 7-0 win against Manchester United will be talked about in a century's time and go down in the annals of history…then they lost at relegation-haunted Bournemouth.

In fact, their entire season could be summed up when Real visited Anfield in the first leg. Liverpool raced into a two-goal lead and then utterly collapsed under a stunning Spanish comeback and Carlo Ancelotti's men romped to a 5-2 win.

Liverpool now need a three-goal win of any description with no away goals anymore, but if they were to take any smidgen of hope, it would be Los Merengues have hardly been the model of consistency themselves.

Since that win on Merseyside, they have been held by Atletico Madrid and Real Betis and lost the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg to Barcelona.

They returned to winning ways against Espanyol, but with this tie surely all but in the bag, they would be forgiven for having one eye on their trip to Catalonia at the weekend where they must win at Barcelona to stay in the La Liga race.
