Real Madrid vs Liverpool, Champions League 06.04.2021
Two of European Club competition giants renew their hostilities on Tuesday evening as six-time Champions League winners Liverpool travel to Spain to take on 13-time winners Real Madrid in the first leg of their quarter-final match-up.
The Reds have been woeful in the defence of their EPL title and they may have to pull another “Istanbul” moment to qualify for next season’s Champions League competition.
We will explore Betway betting app’s prices as we take a look at our betting tips for this game.
Real Madrid have become synonymous with this competition. They are by far the most successful club in the history of the Champions League having hoisted the trophy a record 13 times. By their standards though, they have been in the cold for quite a bit of time as this is their first quarter-finals in the last three seasons.
Los Bloncos have fallen off the radar since the departure of Cristiano who was a beast in the Champions League during his stint at the club. They huffed and puffed to barely squeak through group stages with just 10 points from their six group games. Still, they somehow managed to top the group despite losing home and away to Shakhtar Donestk.
They did look like themselves in the second round against Atalanta and given their history in the competition, they remain a force to reckon with.
With their title defence in utter disarray and even a top-four finish in the EPL looking like a long shot, Liverpool have directed their focus to the Champions League and they have seemingly looked like a totally different outfit.
Jurgen Klopp’s side easily topped their group and they were ruthlessly efficient in their 2-0 duplicate victories over RB Leipzig in the second round which earned them this date with Real Madrid in the quarter-finals.
Injury woes have been a huge part of their narrative this season. They got a huge boost with the return of the red hot Diogo Jota and Klopp will continue pushing his faith in the Portuguese forward to reignite their attack as we get to the business end of the season.
Possible Line Ups

REAL MADRID VS LIVERPOOL BETTING PREDICTIONS
Although these two teams won the league titles in their respective backyards last season, all indications are neither of them is likely to repeat that feat this time around. Liverpool are completely out of the title picture in the EPL while Real Madrid might well get a front-row seat to view their neighbors Atletico’s title parade unless Atletico chokes their way as they get to the finish line. This, therefore, means that both teams view this competition as their saving grace for the season and we can expect a closely fought and competitive encounter here. With the quality of forwards on both teams, we fancy both teams to find the back of the net in this first leg as our opening betting tip today @ 1.67.
Bookies prices do indeed suggest a close affair here. We are however drawn to Real Madrid’s recent resurgence and their pedigree in this competition. Granted, they have had some favorable league fixtures lately. But they have also proven their mettle whenever they needed to both in this season’s Champions League as well as the big games in La Liga. We are therefore backing them on a combo bet of Real Madrid/Draw and Over 1.5 goals @ 1.93 for our final tip with Betway bookmaker review.
