Although Los Blancos have a big advantage overall, you can be sure they won’t take Wednesday lightly. As an alternative, it’s highly likely that manager Carlo Ancelotti will start his strongest lineup against Liverpool.

He understands the Reds can be tricky in crucial games, which is the fundamental explanation. After all, they did defeat Real’s bitter rival Barcelona in the 2019 UCL by mounting an incredible comeback from a 3–0 deficit.
