Great match in the round of 16 of the Champions League between two teams that have been champions on several occasions and that last year met in the final.
Liverpool knows that this is a different tournament and, without being able to fight for the title in England, they hope to fight for it in Europe.
Real Madrid is the current champion and a specialist in this tournament, so despite playing as a visitor, they will go out looking for victory.
Tuesday, February 21 at 3:00 pm ET at Anfield
Real Madrid +183
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Liverpool?
The Premier League is one thing and the Champions League is another. In one, you must have a great performance over 38 games, while in the other it is enough for you to score a goal and then protect yourself so that you do not receive any and thus advance.
Liverpool hasn’t had their best season, but that doesn’t stop them from being a dangerous team. In addition, they have already won again in the league and recovered very important players such as Virgil Van Dijk, Diogo Jota, and Roberto Firmino. Luis Diaz has already started training on the pitch, but he won’t be ready yet, while Thiago Alcantara recently got injured and will be out for 4 weeks, although 18-year-old Spanish Stefan Bajcetic replaced him very well at the end of last week and seems to be one of the great revelations of the team.
In this Champions League, Liverpool lost the first game against Napoli (4-1) and won the next 5. As locals, they scored 6 goals (2 in each one) and only conceded 1. Anfield is always a special setting in European competitions.
Why Bet on Real Madrid?
Real Madrid is the current defending champion and a few weeks ago it reached 30 international titles and 100 overall, after winning the Club World Cup. Now they want to go for more and are going for their sixth Champions League in the last 10 years. An outrage and shows that it is a team that knows how to play this type of competition.
In La Liga, Carlo Ancelotti’s team is going to have to settle for second place because Barcelona has made a big difference and is playing very well, so all eyes are on this tournament. Karim Benzema had a couple of problems and Toni Kroos was ill, but it seems that they will be available to play at Anfield, as well as Thibaut Courtois, who has already recovered. Without a doubt, this is good news for the Spanish team.
In this Champions League, they have won 4 games, tied 1, and lost another. Precisely the game was tied and the one lost was away, against Shakhtar (1-1) and Red Bull Leipzig (3-2), so it has not been a good visitor.
Final Betting Analysis: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid
Great match between two very important teams that become much bigger in this type of competition. Real Madrid has been playing a little better but Liverpool has recovered players and sensations, in addition to playing at Anfield, which we think gives them a very slight advantage, however, the Merengues have that special mystique. We believe it will be a tie.
At MyBookie.ag we find that Liverpool is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of +137, while Real Madrid has +183 and the draw is +255.
The last time they met was on May 28 of last year in Paris in the Champions League final and Real Madrid won 1-0 with a goal from Vinicius, while the last time they did it at Anfield was on May 14, April 2021 in the quarterfinals and they were 0-0, but the Spanish advanced thanks to the 3-1 victory in the first leg. Liverpool has not won since a 4-0 in 2009 in the round of 16 of this tournament, since then Real Madrid has won 5 times and tied once.
Go for a draw in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the draw at +255, you will gain $255 for a total payout of $355.
