Liverpool-Real Madrid: the probable compositions


What’s next after this ad

May 28, 2022. Real Madrid wins the Champions League final at the Stade de France against Liverpool (1-0). A new European success for the Spaniards. Almost nine months later, the two European giants meet again this Tuesday in the round of 16 of C1 (match at 9 p.m.). For this first leg, which will take place at Anfield Road, Jürgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti, who know each other very well for having faced each other several times, will bring out the big team. This, even if several players will be missing on both sides.

On the English side, the coach of the Mersey club will have to do without Ibrahima Konaté, Thiago Alcantara or Luis Diaz. Darwin Nuñez is uncertain. Despite everything, the German technician will be able to count on several holders who will evolve in 4-3-3 against the people of Madrid. In the cages, no surprise. Alisson Becker will start the game. To help him contain the Spanish onslaught, the Brazilian should be aided by a defense consisting of Andrew Robertson, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Absentees on both sides

There is however a small uncertainty since some English media announce Joël Matip in the eleven in place of Gomez. In midfield, Klopp will a priori align the Henderson-Fabinho-Bajcetic trio. Finally, to find the net, Liverpool will rely on Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and his winter rookie Cody Gakpo. Opposite, Real Madrid will also have to do without several players. Toni Kroos (gastro) and Aurélien Tchouameni (flu) should not be there, just like Mariano Diaz (choice of coach) and Ferland Mendy (injured).

Despite everything, the team, which will evolve in 4-3-3, will look great. Lined up in goal, Thibaut Courtois will be helped by the Alaba-Rüdiger-Militão-Carvajal quartet (from left to right). In the absence of Kroos and Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga and Dani Ceballos will take the opportunity to take their place in the starting lineup alongside the indispensable Luka Modric. Finally, Vinicius Jr and Fede Valverde will support Karim Benzema, aligned at the top. Mute in C1 since the start of the season (no goal in 4 appearances), KB9 will have the opportunity to score again in this competition tonight during a gala match.
