Ah the Champions League. What a glorious competition.
Later today Real Madrid be entertained at Anfield on the west of England in what is to be a thrilling Champions League tie. It will be the true test of whether Liverpool are ready to return to the Champions League quality of competition.
News on the match includes the fact that Real Madrid star Gareth Bale will be out for the match. Liverpool are also to be worried over Mario Balotelli's form who, while having scored in the Champions League for Liverpool once already, has failed to score on any of his 30 shots in the Premier League so far.
In the end I fancy Real Madrid in this contest. The quality they possess is nothing to snuff at, particularly as defending champions. Liverpool, much like City, will find the Champions League a hard road to drive down.
Prediction Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool
