Real Madrid and Liverpool have been involved in their fair share of big games in recent years, namely two Champions League finals. Los Blancos have come out on top on both occasions. The first one, in 2018, was remembered for the disastrous performance of Loris Karius and the injury of Mohamed Salah.

Thus, last season’s final was built up as a redemption game for Liverpool, who also had the chance of winning a historic treble, having won the League Cup and the FA Cup already. They just were not good enough on the night though, as Thibaut Courtois produced an all-time great display while Vinicius Jr scored the winning goal for Real Madrid.

Now, the two teams are set to face-off in the Champions League once again, but this time not in the final but in the round of 16 instead.

As reported by Express, according to Jose Luis Sanchez, the draw has been met with satisfaction from a Real Madrid perspective and while speaking on El Chiringuito TV, he claimed that the Los Blancos dressing room is content with their fate and believe it as a fair draw.

The two teams are in very different positions right now. Real Madrid have made a great start to the season and only lost once till now. They are near the top of the La Liga table as expected.

The same cannot be said about Liverpool, who have faltered in the Premier League and sit at 8th in the table. They also finished second in their Champions League group.

Thus, one would have to consider Real Madrid as the favourites going into this game, although the World Cup in the middle of the season could end up having a huge impact on the result, with a long way still to go.
