RM are man marking and defending so we need dribblers, people who like this situation and can turn, make the next situation a big advantage. And that is what Naby’s job is tonight other than defending, shooting, fighting, all these things.'","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Kishan Vaghela"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/04/06/19/1617734872127_lc_galleryImage_KIRKBY_ENGLAND_MARCH_29_T.JPG"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Glowing words from Owen on Zidane","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html#lc-id-22","dateModified":"2021-04-06T19:41:12+01:00","datePublished":"2021-04-06T19:41:12+01:00","articleBody":"He was his team-mate for just one season, but Michael Owen did not have Zidane down as future manager then.","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Kishan Vaghela"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/04/06/16/41408404-0-image-m-16_1617723474254.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"We can confirm Alisson has kept the tache","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html#lc-id-21","dateModified":"2021-04-06T19:36:44+01:00","datePublished":"2021-04-06T19:36:44+01:00","articleBody":"","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Kishan Vaghela"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/04/06/19/1617734197668_lc_galleryImage_MADRID_SPAIN_APRIL_06_Ali.JPG"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"A historic night for Zidane too","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html#lc-id-20","dateModified":"2021-04-06T19:31:42+01:00","datePublished":"2021-04-06T19:31:42+01:00","articleBody":"","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Kishan Vaghela"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/04/06/16/41408404-0-image-m-16_1617723474254.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Could be another piece of history tonight...","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html#lc-id-19","dateModified":"2021-04-06T19:30:13+01:00","datePublished":"2021-04-06T19:30:13+01:00","articleBody":"","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Kishan Vaghela"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/04/06/16/41408404-0-image-m-16_1617723474254.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Country records","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.

Presented.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) April 6, 2021 20:41 That just about sums it up... 20:39 39 min: Real Madrid 2-0 Liverpool Sadio Mane is the first player in the book for continuing the Liverpool protests about the goal. The hosts in firm control. 20:36 GOAL! Real Madrid 2-0 Liverpool (Asensio 36) Another long ball from Kroos signals the situation going from bad to worse for Liverpool. The German's ball is headed by Alexander-Arnold straight into the path of Asensio, who gets a touch past Alisson before prodding home into an empty net. Liverpool are furious that Vazquez was not penalised for a foul on Mane at the other end, moments before Kroos pinged the ball. 20:34 33 min: Real Madrid 1-0 Liverpool Vinicius Junior and Benzema are causing Liverpool all sorts of issues. The latter tries to draw a penalty from Kabak, but it is more a tangle of legs than anything, albeit it is a bit scruffy. Then the Brazilian receives the ball from the Frenchman and hits a strike at goal which Phillips blocks, before Asensio fires over from the resulting corner. 20:30 30 min: Real Madrid 1-0 Liverpool Liverpool look to hit back after a rather tepid opening half an hour from them, but Mane's cross is easily claimed by Courtois. Salah however runs in behind moments later and wins a corner for his side. 20:27 GOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 Liverpool (Vinicius 27) First blood to the hosts, and what a pinpoint ball it is from Kroos. The German pings a gorgeous ball into the Brazilian without him having to break stride, and then he controls the ball with his upper chest before firing coolly past Alisson. Liverpool defence nowhere to be seen. 20:25 25 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool Neither side wanting to keep the ball in these last few minutes, with Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez guilty for the hosts and Keita for the visitors. All has led to the game being slowed down, only for Benzema to nearly make the hosts pay with a missplaced pass, but Kabak does brilliantly to track the Frenchman one on one and block his shot. 20:22 22 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool The visitors just trying to take some sting out of the game with some possession in the Madrid half after their confident start. But so far they are holding firm and have given Klopp and his men a few headaches. 20:19 19 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool Strong defending from Kabak there after more nice pace down the left from Madrid. Vinicius is the player the young defender has to nullify, and he does so with some strength and clever positional play. 20:17 17 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool Real Madrid showing their experience at this stage of the competition despite the absence of Varane and Ramos so far. Alexander-Arnold however looks to find Mane and assist as he did at the weekend, and only a Lucas Vazquez header stops the ball finding the Senegalese.  20:13 13 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool First moments of real danger for Liverpool. Vinicius gets clear down the left and cuts the ball back to Modric, who goes down in the penalty box looking for a penalty. Replays however show Wijnaldum pulled out of making any challenging. Mendy then beats Alexander-Arnold and finds Vinicius, who plants his header wide. 20:11 10 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool Liverpool have not won in six meetings in Spain against Spanish opposition, and they have certainly been on the back foot here. Salah tries to get them going but Courtois mops up for the hosts. Fabinho is then forced to tidy up for the visitors after Vinicius' run. 20:07 7 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool Very much the hosts on the front foot so far, but the offside flag has come to the rescue of Liverpool on a couple of occasions. Asensio and Vinicius dropping deep when Liverpool have the ball but are racing forward when they get the chance too. 20:04 4 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool Bright start this from the hosts, who are trying to dictate play on their terms with their passing and through Karim Benzema, with Ferland Mendy also trying to go forward. 20:02 2 min: Real Madrid 0-0 Liverpool First shot of the evening from the in-form Karim Benzema, who whizzes a left-foot strike down the throat of Alisson. 20:00 KICK OFF It's the hosts who get us going at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on a clear night in Madrid, as they meet for the second time in a two-legged affair. 19:56 Players in the tunnel The hosts standing in the tunnel, with Thibaut Courtois even allowing himself to smile briefly, before Karim Benzema leads them out, soon followed by the visitors. 19:52 Ten minute warning It's a cold one tonight, so get those cuppas ready, and hopefully there'll be some further warmth provided by this blockbuster clash. 19:47 Klopp: I could no longer avoid selecting Keita Jurgen Klopp on Naby Keita to BT Sport: 'He should play good, that would be nice. I could not avoid him anymore with all the training performances and that is the result of it. 'Naby brings special things in. RM are man marking and defending so we need dribblers, people who like this situation and can turn, make the next situation a big advantage. And that is what Naby’s job is tonight other than defending, shooting, fighting, all these things.' 19:41 Glowing words from Owen on Zidane He was his team-mate for just one season, but Michael Owen did not have Zidane down as future manager then. "Unbelievable. I mean the best!" ????"I couldn't mention the best player without saying Steven Gerrard but Zidane's technique..." ✨@themichaelowen on Zizou! ???? pic.twitter.com/PexZejG3rO— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) April 6, 2021 19:36 We can confirm Alisson has kept the tache 19:31 A historic night for Zidane too 50 - This will be Zinedine Zidane’s ???????? 50th game as a manager in the @ChampionsLeague. The @realmadriden boss has won 30 of his first 49, while the only manager to have won more through their first 50 games in the competition is Josef Heynckes ???????? (32). Celebration. pic.twitter.com/CTlHLYgHNh— OptaJose (@OptaJose) April 6, 2021 19:30 Could be another piece of history tonight... Is the Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium (6,000) the lowest capacity venue that a European Cup quarter-final has ever been held in? Must be close.— Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) April 6, 2021 19:26 Country records Real Madrid have won eight and lost five of their last 13 two-legged knockout ties with English clubs. It had however all been going swimmingly with three straight wins against English sides before the loss to Man City last season. Liverpool have meanwhile won 15 of their last 23 European fixtures but have only won two of their last 12 matches against Spanish opposition, suffering eight defeats in the process. 19:21 Support from all spheres for the hosts tonight... More than ready !! ???? @CSainz_oficial-@realmadrid #halamadrid pic.twitter.com/5stIVNkHRa— Carlos Sainz (@Carlossainz55) April 6, 2021 19:19 Pristine conditions 19:17 Recent form What can the sides' latest form hint at tonight? Well, both, despite disappointments over the course of the season, are back in business right now. Madrid have won nine of their last 11 matches in all competitions, including a 2-0 success over Eibar on Saturday afternoon. Liverpool are also back on track for a top four finish, having won three on the trot and now sitting two points off fourth after winning at Arsenal. 19:13 Holy Trinity Michael Owen highlights the Real Madrid midfield as an area where there has been little change and that has aged since the 2018 final. But can the trio show age is just a number tonight? Real Madrid's three midfield maestros are still pulling the strings The irrelevance of the 2018 final in Ukraine is genuine because the motors of that Real side, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, are gone. Midfield is what matters now for Madrid. Mail Online 19:10 Warning shot 5 - Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has won each of his last five games at the quarter-final stage of the Champions League, including all four of his games at this stage while in charge of the Reds (two versus Manchester City in 2017-18 and FC Porto in 2019-20). Control. pic.twitter.com/Q8tyxhHRrd— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) April 6, 2021 19:08 Liverpool fans look away.... Real Madrid won a 13th European title, but it was a night to forget for Loris Karius and the Reds... 19:06 One man who will be glad not to have to face Sergio Ramos tonight is Mohamed Salah. Left in tears in Kiev, he has gone on to achieve plenty domestically and on the continent, but can he take another step tonight against a side he has been linked with? Mohamed Salah's highs and lows since last meeting with Real Madrid That night in Kiev when Ramos grabbed hold of Salah's right arm and yanked him to the turf with such force the Egyptian dislocated his shoulder and left the field in tears was a defining one. Mail Online 19:03 2014 meeting We know all about the 2018 final meeting between these two sides, but what happened the last time these two sides met on Spanish soil? Well, it saw Brendan Rodgers field a weakened side, but now Jurgen Klopp's men look to set the record straight. Rodgers' 2014 gamble revisited as Liverpool return to Real Madrid Six-and-a-half years have passed since Liverpool last faced Real Madrid on their own soil. A humiliating night, containing one of the most bemusing team selections. Now, Jurgen Klopp can make amends. Mail Online 18:59 Big night for Militao and Nacho... 1 - Real Madrid have not played a Champions League game without both Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos since December 2018 against CSKA Moscow (0-3 defeat). This is the only game played without at least one of the 2 defenders in the UCL since 2016.

It will see Eder Militao and Nacho form a partnership in central defence, while Karim Benzema - Madrid's saviour so often this season - starts. ????✅ ¡Nuestro ???????? inicial para el partido ???? @LFC!@Liberbank | #UCL pic.twitter.com/EZNXYeWCbP— Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadrid) April 6, 2021 18:46 Real Madrid: form v history Very rarely have Real Madrid made it so far in the competition and not been considered a serious candidate to win the Champions League. But as with many things in the game, this season has been a little different. They suffered a shock home defeat to Shakthar Donetsk in the group stages and a draw away at Gladbach, but came round to progress and then knock out Atalanta in the last 16. It has been part of a recent recovery for Madrid, who could go top of LaLiga this weekend if they win the Clasico and results go their way. But the immediate focus is gaining an edge over Liverpool, who were considered among the favourites before the almighty slump in form in the league. But history dictates Zinedine Zidane's men will always be there or there about when it comes to this stage. 18:39 Betfair odds A look at those latest odds ahead of tonight's heavyweight clash, courtesy of Betfair: Real Madrid to win 19/10Liverpool to win 7/5Draw 5/2Real Madrid to qualify 13/10Liverpool to qualify 6/10 18:38 The man to transform the Reds? Liverpool's convincing win at Arsenal at the weekend was crucial in restoring confidence for Jurgen Klopp's men, with the Champions League their only chance of silverware this season. Central to that was victory was Diogo Jota, who netted the opener and third goal at the Emirates. And now he is eyeing more success down the road for the Reds, starting with tonight. Diogo Jota insists he can transform Reds' front three into a fab four Since returning from a knee injury in March that kept him out for four months, Jota has helped the Reds return to winning ways, scoring three goals and setting up another in his last three outings. Mail Online 18:32 Hello and welcome Champions League nights simply don't get bigger than this do they? The first leg of this blockbuster clash is without several blockbuster names though, but more on that as and when we have the teams. A repeat of the 2018 final awaits, with both sides keen to seize silverware in Europe this season once more. {"id":"9440525","channel":"/sport","pageUrl":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9440525/Real-Madrid-vs-Liverpool-Champions-League-2020-21-Live-Result.html","status":"running","greenBox":{"body":""},"modifiedOrder":1} 0 0 if (!window.LiveCommentary) window.LiveCommentary = {}; window.LiveCommentary.commentaryConf = JSON.parse('{"publicNodeHost":"livecommentary.dailymail.co.uk/apps/livecommentary_public","websocketNodeHost":"https://livecomjoy.dailymail.co.uk/apps/livecommentary_public","startTime":1561043699,"appVersion":3,"frontEndHostOverride":"www.dailymail.co.uk","dmWebsiteOrigin":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk","pushMissingPostsOnReconnect":false}');
