Liverpool Will Beat ‘Vulnerable’ Real Madrid
Following Liverpool’s qualification to the final of the Champions League, Ex-Liverpool players Danny Murphy and Craig Bellamy are beginning to believe that the Mersyside team have a big chance of lifting the trophy come May 26th.
“I’m trying to underplay it, but they’ve got a hell of a chance,” Murphy said.
“I don’t see Real Madrid play and not concede lots of chances. They might score but Liverpool will create so many chances in the game. I think if Liverpool could have chosen Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, they’d have chosen Madrid.
“I think it’s meant to be. There’s something about this Liverpool side and the way they play. Madrid’s performance at Tottenham keeps sticking in my head. They couldn’t handle the energy that Spurs played at – the strength of their runners.”
“I watched them against Juventus and tactically they are so vulnerable,” Bellamy said.
“The way Madrid play will suit Liverpool. They don’t track runners – you can run off the back of them. Experience will be important but this Madrid team aren’t as good as the Madrid teams of the last two, three years. This is a very good opportunity for Liverpool.
“Liverpool will have a lot of confidence about beating this Real Madrid side. My concern is the experience edge Madrid have.
“I fancy Liverpool, I really do. I’m not a betting man, but if I was, I’d put my money on Liverpool.”
Despite being excited and having a strong belief that their former club will go on to win the most prestigious trophy in European club title, both players admitted that Madrid have an ‘experience’ advantage over Liverpool.
Who do you think will come out victorious on May 26th?
