I am actually with Diego on this. Yeah, they haven't been the best this season, but look at all those experienced match winners they have + Ronaldo? Not like we are better than them in all departments. Their midfield, CB pairing and GK are better, whilst we have the better attack and full backs. I really think it's gonna be a very difficult game.
You just gotta laugh at the level of bitterness... the same old "dirty", "cheating bas**rds", "they have the referees" some LFC fans have used against Man Utd for three decades whilst they won the league every couple of years... one would have thought Ferguson was actually a sh*t manager. Now that he's gone, people seem more keen to admit he was actually quite good at his job. Now a club with 3 out of 4 UCL titles, 4 out of 5 finals, is supposedly 'not great'.
Yeah right. I'd much rather play against Tolisso and Tiago than Modric and Kroos. Nearly the entire Real Madrid's team would get into our starting XI, and their bench is much stronger as well.
I don't think our fullbacks are better. TAA has been great the last few games in the Champions League but Carvajal is a very accomplished player... today they had Vasquez there who isn't really a fullback. And as much as I love Robertson, he needs to play at that level for quite some time to be better than Marcelo. The only players we have that would make the Real Madrid team is our attacking trio, and even so not all of them.
Thankfully they haven't been playing to their best standards, but there's always the chance their game winners decide to show up for a big game.
