Real Madrid Watch

As the excitement grows ahead of next week’s mouth-watering Champions League tie away to Spanish giants Real Madrid, we’ll be keeping an eye on Los Blancos this weekend.

The Reds travel to the Bernabeau on Wednesday night to take on Real for this first time since the 1981 European Cup Final, with kick-off at 7.45pm.

But Real have domestic action to concentrate on first with a must-win game against in-form Real Betis in La Liga on Saturday night.

Real are in form themselves, crushing Sporting Gijon 4-0 last night to edge closer to league leaders Barcelona.

Liverpool are in action on Sunday at home to Manchester City in the Premier League. Kick-off at Anfield is 3pm.
