Pepe calls for special Anfield night

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina wants tonight’s Champions League second round second leg tie at home to Real Madrid to go down in history as one of those historic Anfield nights where the Kop plays its part in Liverpool’s success.

The Reds hold a 1-0 lead going into tonight’s clash, and Reina knows how important it is that the fans are vocal tonight in spurring the team into the quarter-finals of the competition.

The Spaniard told press, “We need to be able to feel that the supporters are with us and behind us like crazy.

“The atmosphere on the night when we played Barcelona was unbelievable and I would like to remind the people of moments like these that we have enjoyed together and now to try and create some new ones.

“We always talk about wanting Anfield to be like a fortress and this is one of those occasions when we need it to be this way.

“With the help of everyone it makes our job a little easier. The fans can make a massive difference to us in this game like they have done in the past, so hopefully this will be the case.”

Liverpool vs Real Madrid gets underway at 7.45pm.
