Real Madrid vs. Liverpool live stream: Watch the Champions League quarterfinal
Two of the most successful teams in the history of the European Cup face off on Tuesday as 13-time winners Real Madrid host Liverpool, champions on six occasions, in the home leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.
Both sides will arrive at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in excellent form after wins on their return from international break, Liverpool's in particular an outstanding 3-0 dismantling of Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Injuries to key defenders Virgil van Dijk, Sergio Ramos and Joe Gomez mean that goals could be a frequent feature of the seventh and eighth meetings of these two teams, whose historical record against their opponent is identical: three wins and three defeats with seven goals scored. Here is how you can watch the game and what you need to know:
Real Madrid: The involvement of two first-team players to training on Monday will be a welcome boost to Zinedine Zidane with Federico Valverde and Eden Hazard both taking to the field ahead of Tuesday's game. Such have been the injuries problems that have blighted Hazard that even after three sessions he is surely some way from being able to make a major impact against a Liverpool side he tends to be successful against, winning six and losing four of 18 meetings with the Reds whilst scoring seven and providing four assists.
"The important thing is that Eden is relaxed, and returns when he is fully recovered," said Zidane, seemingly downplaying the chances of a major role for Hazard in the first leg. "If he is right, then I always want him with the team. But now we are going step by step, and we will see when he plays again."
Valverde's return to training with Toni Kroos' fitness also improving might be all the more important for Zidane, offering him a variety of options to counter a Liverpool midfield that looks altogether more balanced since Fabinho moved into central areas.
Liverpool: Diogo Jota returned from international duty with a bang on Saturday, ensuring that Liverpool's dominance of Arsenal was reflected on the scoreline with two well-taken goals, extending his tally to 12 goals in 22 games this season. The Portuguese forward has adapted superbly to a more central role under Jurgen Klopp and will offer an intriguing alternative to or partner for Roberto Firmino.
What will make that selection question all the more intriguing for Klopp is that Jota is the ideal impact substitute, versatile enough to replace any of the front three if they're having an off day and with the ideal attributes to exploit a tiring defense. It is a good dilemma to have but a dilemma all the same for Liverpool.
This game will be extremely close but Liverpool's recent form is not to be sniffed at and their ceiling may just be that one level higher than Real Madrid's. Pick: Real Madrid 1, Liverpool 2
Liverpool resume their quest for silverware in a clash of two genuine European heavyweights, as they head to Real Madrid for the Champions League quarter-final first leg.
The Reds reached this stage after topping their group and beating RB Leipzig in the round of 16, with the second leg of that tie being the start of a current three-match win streak. Jurgen Klopp’s team had struggled for results prior to that, but looked back to somewhere near their best in a weekend demolition job against Arsenal.
In fact, Liverpool have had few struggles on the road this year despite dropping off the pace in the Premier League; they have won seven of their last nine away games in all competitions, with the only two defeats coming against second- and third-placed Man United and Leicester.
It’s at home where the Reds have really struggled, meaning they might well look to this first leg as all-important to get their noses in front and have plenty to fight for when Real Madrid visit Anfield in just over a week.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that Eden Hazard will miss out through injury, while Sergio Ramos is also sidelined and Fede Valverde is a big doubt. Dani Carvajal is also a long-term absentee.
Liverpool remain without their three centre-backs who are out for the season in Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, while Jordan Henderson is also not expected to feature again this term in midfield. Divock Origi and Caoimhin Kelleher are doubts, but neither would have started the game.
The stakes are generally high in any UEFA Champions League quarterfinal match, but Tuesday's Real Madrid vs. Liverpool face-off carries some extra spice. This is the first time the two storied sides will meet since the 2018 Champions League final, a match Real Madrid won 3-1.
You may remember that match turned when Mohamed Salah, Liverpool's top scorer, had to come off injured following a controversial tackle by Real Madrid Sergio Ramos. Liverpool won't be able to extract any revenge against Ramos — he's likely to miss this week's match due to injury — but the Reds will be hoping to score an away goal and set themselves up for a triumphant return to Anfield in the second leg of this Champions League quarterfinal.
Both teams have had uneven seasons, though Real Madrid comes into the first leg of this quarterfinal in better form, having won eight of their last 10 matches in all competitions. Liverpool is coming off a big win over Arsenal after struggling for much of the past two months.
The Real Madrid vs. Liverpool Champions League quarterfinal figures to be a must-watch match. Here's where to find a live stream and how to use a VPN if you can't watch Real Madrid vs. Liverpool wherever you happen to be.
The Champions League throws up a mammoth quarter-final clash on Tuesday night when Real Madrid host Liverpool.
The Reds travel to Madrid for the first leg of the last eight in what is a repeat of the 2018 final that saw Los Blancos triumph in a 3-1 victory. The pair of Europe's most successful sides have both endured difficult domestic campaigns, however, and are vying to save their season by progressing to the semi-finals.
Both teams are beginning to pick up their form again as of late though, and the prospect of making the competition's final four makes this one a tense affair.
The big blow for Zinedine Zidane's side is the loss of captain Sergio Ramos. A muscle injury suffered during the international break sees him ruled out yet again, despite having only just come back from another injury before the break.
On the flip side, however, they are boosted by the return to fitness of Eden Hazard, who has returned to training and is expected to be with the squad. The Belgian had been ruled out with yet another injury and has featured just once since January, but has made strides forward. Federico Valverde is also set to return in midfield.
Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane were rested at the weekend and started on the bench, likely with one eye on Liverpool's midweek visit.
No surprises for Liverpool unfortunately, as long-term absentees mean they are still down on defensive strength.
Jurgen Klopp did claim that midfielder Jordan Henderson will be able to return to training in a few weeks' time, but there is no chance of him returning for the Madrid fixture, and certainly not the first leg.
Diogo Jota came off the bench against Arsenal at the weekend and bagged a brace, giving Klopp a bit of a headache when trying to settle on a front three.
Real Madrid and Liverpool will be battling for a spot in the Champions League semi-finals in what promises to be a very interesting and intense showdown between two of the greatest European clubs.
'Los Blancos' will play the first leg at Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano, where they will try to get a positive result before traveling to England for the reverse fixture at Anfield.
The hosts are the most successful team in the history of the competition with 13 titles, four of which (including three in a row) came in the last seven years.
However, since superstar Cristiano Ronaldo left the club, they have been knocked out in the round of 16 in the last two seasons, losing to Ajax and Manchester City respectively.
Zinedine Zidane’s men had a difficult group stage, together with Borussia Monchengladbach, Inter Milan and Shakhtar Donetsk and at one point many believed the Spanish giants wouldn’t make it to the knockout stages, But Madrid proved why they can’t never be overlooked by beating their opponents when most needed.
Meanwhile, Liverpool go into the match with their 3-1 loss in the 2018 Champions League final in their minds. The Reds, who are fighting to be among the top four in the Premier League, are far away from leaders Manchester City and will try to get a good result against the Spanish giants.
However, Madrid have won eight and lost five of their previous 13 two-legged knockout ties with English clubs and they have been quite solid in LaLiga, where they are only three points away from leaders Atlético Madrid.
Real Madrid will play with a depleted defence as captain Sergio Ramos will miss the game due to a calf issue, as will full-back Dani Carvajal.
The other bad news for Zidane is that Eden Hazard, who was recovering from a muscular problem, won’t be available for this first encounter against Liverpool.
Raphael Varane didn’t play against Eibar in the Spanish league, but will be in the heart of defence, while Toni Kroos and Vinicius Junior are also expected to play from the start.
Caoimhin Kelleher and Divock Origi could return to the bench, while Georginio Wijnaldum could replace James Milner in midfield.
Although Jota scored twice against Arsenal, the Portugal international may start on the bench once again, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino in the attacking line.
The 2020/2021 Champions League quarter-finals first leg between Real Madrid and Liverpool will be played at Estadio Alfredo di Stéfano and will kick off at 3pm EDT on Tuesday 6 April 2021.
That's 12 noon PDT, 9pm local time in Spain (CEST) and 8pm in the UK (BST).
