Real Madrid are reverting to the classic ‘BBC’ frontline tonight, meaning they’ll use a 4-3-3 and not the 4-3-1-2 or 4-4-2 which they’ve used for the majority of the season.
This is according to MARCA, who claim Isco will start on the bench and Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo will flank Karim Benzema.
It was assumed that Ronaldo and Benzema would play up front with Isco as a no.10, but now the Spanish playmaker looks set to join Marcos Asensio on the bench.
This means Ronaldo will be directly up against Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Bale will look to isolate Andrew Robertson.
Of course, this may be a tactic from Real Madrid’s mouthpiece MARCA to unsettle Liverpool and make Jurgen Klopp worry bout his tactics.
Although we wouldn’t be surprised if it was true considering Bale’s form towards the end of La Liga campaign.
In truth, whoever plays, Liverpool are up against world-class offensive talent and will need to play the game of their lives to keep them out.
But we’re backing Klopp’s Reds to do it.
Bring it on!
