Liverpool Head Coach Cool about Facing Real Madrid in Champions League


Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the Champions League last eight for the first time since the 2017-18 final.

And, as Liverpool seek to avenge their 2018 loss to Los Blancos, Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Though the second leg is set to take place at Anfield, the location of the first leg is unknown due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

“It’s exciting, exciting,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.

“It’s obviously a tough draw but I am fine with it because if you look at all the other teams you think, ‘oh my god’, because they are all strong and all have quality, that’s clear.

“I am really looking forward to the games. It’s only just over two years ago that we faced them and it was a tough night for us, so to get the chance to play them again is cool.”

He continued: “I know it’s a different round and whatever and we don’t know where we will play and stuff like this, but that’s all OK. If it will be Budapest, that’s fine. We are fine with that. The home game maybe hopefully at Anfield, that would be great as well.

“So, no, nothing bad to say – nothing bad to say actually, it’s just cool.”
