German coach Jürgen Klopp, the coach of the Liverpool team, raised the banner of the challenge before his team’s match against Real Madrid, in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals, scheduled for Wednesday evening at Anfield in England.
Real Madrid succeeded in achieving a comfortable 3-1 victory in the first leg at Alfredo Di Stéfano in Madrid, in a night during which its young Brazilian striker Vinicius Junior was shining, to get close to the tournament’s golden square and the task is difficult in the expected return leg of the Liverpool team.
Klopp believes in the ability of his team, Liverpool, to return the result against Real Madrid, and said: Everything is possible in football, we will create the atmosphere that helps us win despite the lack of fans.
(AS) quoted Jürgen Klopp as saying: When you lose 3-1, you do not have much to lose, and the return match showed that Real Madrid was the best party, but only in the first round we still have a round to respond, and despite the match being held without an audience We must create the atmosphere that helps us win.
Jürgen Klopp explained: We played a few years ago with Borussia Dortmund, and lost 3-0 in the first leg, and the journalists asked me if it was over and I said maybe but what can we do? In the second leg, we won 2-0, the most important thing is the performance. We have to try to win the match, and believe that in our minds before we try to do it on the stadium.
On the loss in the first leg, he said: Real Madrid’s first goal was a great long ball, but the other two goals did not defend well enough.
Klopp reduced the absences in the ranks of Real Madrid, explaining: Our conditions are similar, they have absences and we have absences, and I felt after the El Clasico match against Barcelona that Real Madrid would be 100 percent ready in front of us.
Juergen Klopp spoke about the level of Brazilian Real Madrid star Vinicius, saying: He impressed me, but what he presented did not surprise me, it is an incredible talent.
Jürgen Klopp also praised the level of his compatriot Toni Kroos, adding: He is a wonderful player since he was very young and became one of the most successful soccer players in the world, and he has not grown old yet, he has many things to come, we do not know each other well, but I admire him. For many years now, he is able to change the game from very deep areas of the field and when he reaches the top he also has a good eye for the ball.
