      No idea how Gini keeps starting with his current situation and form. Think we also possess more intensity when he’s not in the midfield.

      I’d be raging if I was Thiago. 3 games in a row on the bench.

      Agree seems to get away with some pretty poor performances coupled with the fact he is leaving wouldn't be in my team hope I am proven wrong

      Jürgen loves Millie in these types of games. Thiago can make an impact off the bench.

      Happier this time around because we have stuck true to our principles in midfield rather than giving posers like Naby games like these.

      Hard work in midfield should always be our way, with full backs getting forwards and the front 3 looking for goals.

      Thiago for Gini or Milner i wouldnt have minded but at least Naby isn't in the starting XI.

      No creativity in the midfield. Milner? Really? In a game of this magnitude?

      Same back four that got terrorised last week - actually wouldn't have minded seeing Fab back there for this one even though we know he is  better in midfield. His calm head at the back is needed when we pretty much need a clean sheet or we are out.

      Jota on the bench is very strange too. Alot of pressure on Mo. He seems the only player in this 11 capable of scoring right now. Mane and Bobby need to step up.

      Worried with the team but hopefully Jürgen knows what he is doing. Klopp masterclass (3-0) incoming 🤞
       

      Didnt see Fab as a calm head in defence to be honest. Think he's given away 3 pens since going back there for half a season.

      Jota has more impact as a sub, maybe Klopp is thinking the same.

      Thoughts here are a steady defensive display nick a goal if we can in the first half.

      Then as time goes on bring in Jota, Shaq and Thiago to get us over the line.

      That's how I interpret that line up, I personally would have had Nat out of the CB pairing too rash against the top players and got found wanting a lot in that first leg.

      But hey hoe Klopp the boss, I still believe, 2-0 redmen lets do it!

      The real turn up for me is Sadio instead of Jota. At this stage Sadio is being chosen on reputation and historical performances because in this season Jota has achieved more in a lot less games.

      I understand not staring Jota. Firmino has to start this one, although I wouldn’t have minded seeing a front 4. I will give Milner a chance to prove me wrong, but his inclusion doesn’t fill me with confidence. I assume Klopp believes Milner will be effective with his pressing.


      Hopefully we can get the early goal. As long as we don’t go behind by 2 we will always be in it. Madrid scoring makes it much harder though.

      Wijnaldum, Milner and Fabinho vs Modric, Casemiro and Kroos.

      Not sure that adds up

      Team selection aside my main concern is keeping a clean sheet that’s a massive ask & im not even going to mention our goal scoring prowess  at the opposing end this season.

      To be honest we’re probably going to concede here. I don’t think the defence will be able to keep Madrid out all game. We’re going to have to be in goalscoring form if we want to go through. If we had a crowd I’d be more confident. Let’s just hope we get off to a good start.

      No man; he’s class and we need his quality. Only thing I can think is Klopp worries that the diving Madrid players could look to get him sent off due to his tackling.

      Agree.  Three best midfielders we have in terms of pressing currently fit.  In a fully fit squad the only difference here would probably be Henderson for Milner.

      Can't let their midfield dictate the game like last week.  Keita first half and Thiago in the second half both failed to get a grip of their midfielders.

      When every player has been below par it’s just as difficult to answer who has been worse than him.
      Thiago hasn’t settled yet. His tacking is rash. He doesn’t quite fit at the minute.
      Stat wise he is probably our best midfielder. Certainly on Fifa or FM games.

      Plus: if we need creativity late on, it would be easy to bring him on. He’s a good plan B for this game.
