Madrid defeated Italian side Atalanta 1-0 in their last away match in this competition in February 2021 and they will qualify for the semi-finals if they avoid a defeat against Liverpool.

Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio, who both scored against Liverpool, will be keen to help record 13-time Champions League winners, Madrid reach the last four. 
 
Meanwhile, Liverpool's ambitions of reaching the semi-finals for the first time since 2019 are hanging by thread following their defeat to Madrid. 
 
The English giants, who have won six Champions League titles, need to defeat Madrid in their own home ground by three clear goals in order to qualify for the last four. 
 
Liverpool will pin their hopes of advancing to the next round on Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane when they take on a confident Madrid side in Merseyside.

Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, is confident that they overturn the deficit against Zinedine Zidane's Madrid and qualify for the semi-finals. 
 
"We have to play much better football [and] we cannot get it like tonight," Klopp said. 
 
"For example, a few years ago when we played against Barcelona and lost 3-0, we played a super game. That’s a massive difference and tonight we didn’t 
 
"But we can play much better and we can be much more uncomfortable to play against than we were tonight and that’s what we have to make sure next week."
 
The last time Liverpool hosted Madrid in a competitive match on 22 October 2014. 
 
Madrid proved too strong for Liverpool as they emerged 3-0 winners in the Champions League Group B match at the Anfield Stadium.
