Real Madrid v Liverpool FC tips – plain sailing for Real on Tuesday
Liverpool FC likely to be lambs to the slaughter at the Bernabeu
November 3rd, 2014
It is borderline impossible to make a case for a Liverpool victory on Tuesday night, with Brendan Rodgers looking at damage limitation in this Champions League match before trying to beat Basel and Ludogorets to finish second in the group.
With Chelsea the visitors to Anfield on Saturday, there might even be some consideration given to this Premier League engagement as Liverpool look to get something against a Real Madrid side who have scored 24 goals in their last six games.
Four per match is pretty standard for Los Merengues since Carlo Ancelotti took charge, especially with James Rodriguez clicking into gear alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and the pair should be hard to stop on Tuesday night.
Ladbrokes offer a best price 1/4 about a Real victory and it’s potentially worth backing them at 31/20 with BetVictor to win without conceding a goal.
After all, the European champions won 3-0 at Anfield and will be facing a Liverpool side who won’t see much of the ball and struggled to create meaningful chances in the reverse fixture.
Real have kept clean sheets in four of their last six matches, with Sergio Ramos back in the heart of the team’s defence although the danger with the win to nil bet is that Liverpool could score a consolation goal towards the end of the match.
Even so, Rodgers has got major problems on his hands after Saturday’s meek surrender at St James’ Park and there could be a temptation to give Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard a breather.
