Real Madrid vs. Liverpool; three key battles ahead of the UEFA Champions League Clash
Real Madrid may have beaten Liverpool 2-5 at Anfield in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League game.
But with games like this likely to produce some kind of twist and surprises as we’ve seen in the past, caution would be a necessity ahead of this match from Real Madrid’s perspective.
And with stars like that of Mo Salah, Vinicius Jnr and Toni Kroos certain to be on show, Isagoal.com reveals the key battles ahead of the Real Madrid /Liverpool tie.
Karim Benzema vs. Virgil van Dijk
French star Karim Benzema and his counterpart Virgil Van Dijk would be a huge catalyst in this game for their respective sides’.
And with Benzema leading the charge for goals for Real Madrid as well as Virgil Van Dijk, the main man in Liverpool’s defence much will be anticipated from both players on the pitch.

Luka Modric vs. Jordan Henderson
The English star Henderson would have a big work stopping the mercurial Luka Modric in midfield.
Just as the Croatian star proved his mettle in the first leg tie at Anfield. Henderson would have to be at the top of his game to avoid acres of space for Real Madrid to operate in transition.
His ability to read the game could aid his sides’ ambition in this match. While he must be alert to prevent the incisive runs Modric could bring to the fore front.
David Alaba vs. Mohamed Salah
The last but not the least is the African battle between these two players of African Origin. Salah (Egypt) would trade tackle with the experience of Nigeria’s previously eligible star David Alaba on the left back position.
