Liverpool will need to produce one of the all-time great Champions League comebacks if they are to overturn an enormous first-leg deficit away to defending champions Real Madrid.
The Reds were hammered 5-2 at Anfield last month on a night to forget, going two goals ahead only to collapse in spectacular fashion as Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema both bagged braces.
Jurgen Klopp’s side seemed to have turned their form around with a stunning 7-0 win over Manchester United, but a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth last time out was another setback.
Real Madrid ended a mini-slump of three games without a win by beating Espanyol 3-1 on Saturday and Carlo Ancelotti’s side are second in La Liga, nine points behind rivals Barcelona.
Kick-off is at 8pm GMT.
Ferland Mendy and Karim Benzema are approaching comebacks after recent problems, but David Alaba remains sidelined for the Merengues.
Klopp is still without Luis Diaz, Calvin Ramsay, Thiago Alcantara and Joe Gomez, while Naby Keita remains a fitness doubt.

Kick-off and channel
Real Madrid v Liverpool kick-off is at 8pm GMT on Wednesday, 15 March in the UK. The game is being shown on BT Sport 1, BTSport.com and the BT Sport app (opens in new tab).
In the US, kick-off time is 3pm ET / 12pm PT. The match will be shown on Paramount+ in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Champions League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Champions League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
