Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists at this point they will play their best with nothing to lose. At Real Madrid away in the Champions League round of 16 second leg.
Liverpool were beaten 5-2 earlier at home by the scoreline and they need at least three goals in this game to give them a breather in their hopes of progressing to the quarter-finals, Klopp said ahead of the game at Santiago B. Bernabeu will start that he will do his best in this game.
“I am happy to be here. And if there’s a 1% chance of qualifying, I’ll try my hardest. We are here against a very strong team. And we want to win back out of this game. It was very difficult but it was possible. not easy but possible After that, we’ll see where it takes us. We respect this competition.”
“We didn’t come here to remind Real Madrid to be careful to get us. It’s not like that. I think in this press conference 100% thought we had no chance of qualifying. But if I were the only one who thought we had a small chance of progressing then I would have believed that.
Going 3-0 down to Real Madrid is not a Christmas present anyone wants. But this is football we will try our best We have nothing to lose. Thinking like this, it’s better than losing everything. And if I’m Ancelotti I may have put more pressure on keeping this 3-0 score. But I also believe that he will put a lot of emphasis on his players in this game as well.
The game three weeks ago happened and was over. Now this is a new game, there is still a chance to play. I will play and be happy to play in this game.”
