Real Madrid has one foot in the UEFA Champions League semifinals following a 3-1 win vs. Liverpool. ESPN FC's Craig Burley, Alejandro Moreno and Steve Nicol break down what Zinedine Zidane's side did well to top Jurgen Klopp's side. Moreno focuses in on Vinicius Jr., specifically his composure and decision making on the ball. Burley praises Madrid's midfield and the ever-consistent Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. Nicol says Liverpool is not out just yet, but getting the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane more involved in leg two is imperative.

  • Madrid are the better side in the game, why is this hard to say? Liverpool do not allow anything, there is nothing they can do to stop it from happening!

  • "Liverpool let them dominate the middle of the park..." really? With KCM catching their form at the right time, any liverpool mf will warm the bench if they come play for real madrid.

  • Hala Madrid ! While Liverpool has it's defensive issues, it's their midfield play that has unraveled in all competitions. Madrid has had the best midfield for years now. Vinicius can singlehandedly penetrate defenses and wreak havoc. Liverpool were poor & Madrid had missed many scoring chances.

  • As much as these guys are likeable, I sometimes think the likes of Stevie don't really have the technical nous to provide good analysis on the technical aspects to today's game. "The middle three have to stop the opposition getting at the back four"...really? That it? That's all he took from that game? I know there are fundamentals, but it's more complicated than that

  • Liverpool had no choice but to start those centre backs. They are not experienced and all I can say is that’s “too bad”. The reason why it’s just too too bad for them is because they lack experience like they just said. Now tell me what team has more experience in the champions league than Real Madrid does. It’s like a mouse against a tiger. The mouse is Liverpool’s defence and the tiger was Real Madrid painfully break them apart. Despite that, we all know that Liverpool can be dangerous when they have a full healthy team to their deposal. Just keep this in mind Real Madrid’s defence wasn’t at 100% either. We’ll see what happens in the second leg.

  • As a Liverpool fan I can't argue with the result , I thought we had a good chance to make mark , but real stopped us playing controlled the midfield most the game , if we want to win this which I think is a tall order , we need to sort Trent out quick he is our weak link when it comes to defending

  • Real Madrid isn't as solid as many people think and next week it'll be proven. They only took advantage of their tiny training pitch which really affected Liverpool team especially in the first half. It might sound funny to some people but that's the fact and my assertion will be proven next week when Liverpool exposed RM's lapses next week.

  • These guys are a bunch of hacks... The same bunch of wankers said Liverpool's midfield were better than Real Madrid's 3 😆 look at them backtrack now. All they every do is have a go at Mourinho... The most if not one of the most decorated managers walking around but love and celebrate klopp for doing the same thing they criticise Jose. It just goes to show how biased and unqualified for the position these idiots actually are.

  • Madrid was "degraded" because they have old, slow, fake & overhyped players (kross, modric,vinnie, benz, etc.) yet they showed team spirit, class, experience & talent. I really admire Zidane keeping his frame and believing in his team.

    Dado DodaDado Doda15 dager siden
  • That midfield 3 is just ridiculous. Now they’re older they can’t sustain it all season. But for the champions league and the business end of the season. That pedigree and experience is just unmatched. Modric , kroos and casimero can control a game perfectly. To beat Real Madrid you need to score first and make them chase you to tire the midfield.
