Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is confident he and his teammates can turn around their 1-0 deficit going into tonight’s crunch Champions League second round encounter with Liverpool and progress to the quarter-finals.
Ramos was full of praise for Anfield and it’s glorious reputations of unforgettable European nights and atmospheres and insists this will spur him on to play the best match of his life.
“I want to play the best match of my career, I have never played at Anfield – it is a magic stadium and any footballer would want to win there,” he told Sky Sports.
“For us we need to win or win, no other solution exists – it is a match of life or death.”
The Spaniard continued, admitting his side have their work cut out to turn the tie around, but knows anything’s possible. He said, “The score was unjust, at 0-0 nobody could claim anything but now we have to go and get the maximum in England.
“The goal from Benayoun was a failure in our system, but that could happen to the Reds in the return.”
Liverpool vs Real Madrid gets underway at 7.45pm at Anfield.
