Real Madrid and Liverpool began the match with full attacking forces.

Robertson sticks a flea in Nunez’s ear for an unnecessary foul on Carvajal, which halts Liverpool’s momentum up the left.

When Liverpool win the ball back, Alexander-Arnold is played in down the right and cuts into the box by the byline, but he can’t beat a stooping Rudiger at the near post. Corner.

A right-footed shot from Cody Gakpo from the right side of the box is saved in the top right corner. Diogo Jota provided assistance.

I forgot to mention that Benzema brought Jota down in the Real Madrid area at that corner, which led to Jota being flagged for straying offside. Liverpool is generating a lot of press.

The two goalkeepers have been the best players on the field, demonstrating both Real Madrid’s threat and the Reds’ ability to open up the home side.

Of course, they’ll need to score three times to have a chance, and the next 20 minutes after halftime will be crucial.

It will also be fascinating to see what changes Klopp believes he can effect from the bench. He’s basically started with all of his best forwards.

Fabinho trips Kroos in the center circle and raises his voice in vain. Steve McManaman muses that 0-0 at halftime is not a bad scoreline for Liverpool, channeling George Graham in 1989 and laying the groundwork for a comeback.

However, Liverpool’s defenses appear to be far more vulnerable tonight than Arsenal’s were 34 years ago.

Real Madrid’s dominance has waned in recent minutes. Liverpool is making inroads into the game, but there are still no clear-cut chances.

Nunez has just forced Courtois into a fine save in order to earn a corner. However, we know that the hosts can turn it on in an instant. As I type, Vinicius has just forced a save from Alisson. Klopp, on the other hand, will be pleased with the final ten minutes.
