After losing the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal 3-1 to Real Madrid, Liverpool now find themselves with an uphill task.
But manager Jurgen Klopp says they have a chance to turn the tables next week when they host the second leg in what he calls a ‘proper stadium’.
Jurgen Klopp takes swipe at Real Madrid Stadium
Vinicius Jr. and Marco Asensio put Real ahead before the break at the Alfredo di Stefano stadium. While Mohamed Salah grabbed an away goal in the second half, poor defending allowed the Spanish side to grab a third.
Asked about the challenge of chasing a top-four spot and trying to come back in the tie against Madrid, Klopp said his team has no choice but to give their all for everything.
Liverpool overturned a 3-0 deficit against Barcelona in the semifinals in 2019. Still, in the second leg, they will be unable to count on the atmosphere at Anfield, where they have lost their last six Premier League games.
Despite the absence of fans, Klopp said his team would be far more comfortable than they were at the Alfredo di Stefano stadium, which Madrid uses while the Santiago Bernabeu undergoes renovation.
