Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp said his team has nothing to lose against Real Madrid, saying his team’s chances of overturning a three-goal deficit in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie is one per cent possible.


Liverpool have only managed to overturn a three-goal deficit which was against Barcelona in 2019 with a 4-0 victory.

In the competition’s history, no team has ever lost by a 3goal margin in the first-leg of a knockout game and overturned the tide while four teams have overturned a 3goal first-leg deficit.

Klopp in reaction to the second-leg said, “What I said after the game on the night was Madrid, with the result, they are through to the next round.

“But now we are three weeks later and we know there is a game to play. If there is only one per cent chance I would like to give it a try.

“As difficult as it is, that is probably possible. Not likely but possible and for that we are here and then we will see where it will lead us to.

“We respect the competition and the opponent too much to not be looking forward to this game tomorrow. It is a tough task, as we are not in a great situation.
