“Liverpool faces a nightmare”
The English press described the draw between the ‘horror’ and the ‘nightmare’ for Liverpool when they learned that the Reds would play Real Madrid again. These headlines intersected with the intention of the current ownership of the reds to sell the club.
These are their analyses:
Daily Mail: “Liverpool face the toughest test for the English after being drawn by Real Madrid in a repeat of the 2022 and 2018 finals. Klopp’s side, who will curse finishing second in the group, will seek to avenge their defeat in last May final. Fans will be disappointed with the draw as the Reds have struggled to be consistent this season. They will be looking to rectify their form ahead of their Round of 16 clash.”
The Sun: “Red redemption. Liverpool find themselves in a horrible draw against Real Madrid. The clash between two European giants, with 20 wins in the competition between them, was one of the two great highlights of the round of 16 draw” .
Daily Mirror: “Liverpool face a nightmare in the round of 16 playing Real Madrid again. Liverpool have a chance to get early revenge on Real Madrid after losing last season’s Champions League final. Arguably the best pairing of the draw”
Times: “Liverpool will have to overcome their executioner from last season”
The Telegraph also lists Real Madrid as the favorite for this tie in its analysis. “A reissue and a chance for revenge. However, Liverpool feel that this draw is like a punishment, as they took 15 points and finished second in the group stage. Despite their problems and Madrid’s form, It’s a fifty percent tie. The fact that the second leg is at the Bernabéu, where the Spaniards always seem to get it ahead, tilts it in favor of Madrid,” they say.
