Against Real Madrid, I’m happy but sad.. mixed feelings. @LFC

This season’s Round of 16 clash will mark Real Madrid’s third consecutive meeting with Liverpool in the Champions League, with the white side topping out in all three previous encounters. Of course, last season’s final was decided by winner Vinicius Junior, as Madrid won 1-0 over Jurgen Klopp’s side. Last season (2020-21), Los Blancos beat the Merseysiders 3-1 (on aggregate) in the quarterfinals. They also met in the 2018-19 Champions League final, which was also won 3-1 by Real Madrid.

Fans on Twitter were excited before the draw and gave some hilarious reactions.

With both Liverpool and Madrid reported (via Marca) are interested in signing Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund, the upcoming clash in the round of 16 has been dubbed the final showdown for the player.

One fan happily stated that both are in a similar situation to Aurelien Tchouameni, who signed for Madrid in the summer.

Real Madrid beat us in the Champions League and took Tchouameni, now they will beat us in the Champions League and beat Bellingham https://t.co/b0QBqFka3y

There have been comments about Mohamed Salah, when the superstar announced his intention to take revenge last season, only to cut off a disappointing figure in the final.

Journalist: Is it time to take revenge on Real Madrid? Salah: No, I don’t want to. https://t.co/FRMl9dpmBX

Let’s see if Salah talks a lot again before the Real Madrid game. 😂😂

Anfield Edition has opted for more hope despite the recent performance of the Merseysiders, urging Anfield to beckon its magic.

The last time we played Real Madrid in a Champions League knockout tie at Anfield with a large crowd, we won 4-0. Anfield is our biggest weapon and it can be a substitute game. It needs to be returned.

The first leg will be played at Anfield on February 14, 15, 21 or 22, while the second leg is scheduled for March 7, 8, 14 or 15.


A new Mohamed Salah could be Liverpool’s key player against Real Madrid

With Egypt failing to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will be out of action until the third week of December. A much-needed breather could give him a head start. good world, make him hungrier and keep him fresh for the clash with Real Madrid.

He hasn’t had the best start to the 2022-23 campaign but is slowly finding his footing. He has scored 14 goals in 20 games for the Anfield team this season, with 9 of those goals coming from the last 8 matches.

44 goals and 14 assists against the 6th biggest team in the Premier League! 👏Mo Salah loves big games! https://t.co/puUhq7OwIG

On the other hand, most of Real Madrid’s key players will be on international duty. A fixture bottleneck that could drain them before the Champions League game could make Liverpool’s job a little easier.
