Liverpool face Real Madrid in Champions League final rematch

Last year’s Champions League finalists face each other again as Liverpool host Real Madrid in the first leg of their Round of 16 knockout matchup.

The teams meet at Anfield today, nine months after Real beat the Reds 1-0 in last year’s final.

Ahead of today’s game, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said his team must play “two super games” to beat Real Madrid.

Liverpool go into the game after back-to-back wins following a dismal January in which they secured just one point.

Real, meanwhile, will be missing midfielders Aurelien Tchouameni and Toni Kroos because of illness but manager Carlo Ancelotti is confident his side can cope.

Madrid are second in La Liga, 8 points behind Barcelona having suffered only 3 league defeats this season.
