Liverpool, Real Madrid to clash in Champions League last 16

Liverpool will play Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16 for the third consecutive season.

The match, of course, is a replay of last year’s final against Carlo Ancelotti’s side, meaning plenty of narratives of revenge for the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp’s side also faced the Spaniards in 2021, during the pandemic, in a quarter-final tie that ended in a 3-1 win for Real.

Before that, there was the 2018 Champions League final in Kyiv between the two sides, also won by Real.

The last time Liverpool beat Real was in 2009, having lost five of the six matches since then.
