Real Madrid are one of the second placed-teams in the Champions League Groups who Liverpool may now draw in the Last 16.
The others are Atletico Madrid, Lyon, Borussia Dortmund and Atalanta.
When asked about the potential rematch of the 2018 Champions League Final, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane made a bold statement!
“If we play Liverpool, we will eliminate them,” he half-joked (via the Evening Standard). “We can’t do anything about the draw.”
After hearing this, even though it was tongue in cheek, we’d absolutely love for our name to come out of the hat alongside Real Madrid…
It’s not like we need revenge for what happened in Kiev, because we won the Champions League in Madrid last year, but it would be fantastic to see Mo Salah up against an ageing Sergio Ramos at Anfield.
Right now, we’re a much better, more consistent side than Real Madrid – and over two legs – we’d surely be considered the favourites.
Of the potential teams to face, Atalanta would probably be the easiest tie, followed by Lyon – but we’re not scared of anybody.
They’ll be scared of us.
