Real Madrid triumphs within its native walls. Zinedine Zidane’s team defeated English Liverpool. This meeting took place in the framework of the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League. Blancos struck the Reds’ goal three times.
The score was opened by Vinicius Junior. He distinguished himself on the 27th minute of the confrontation. Toni Kroos made a great throw from the depths, Vinicius grabbed the ball, handled it perfectly and sent the ball into the net of the Liverpool goal.
On the 37th, Asensio increased the hosts’ advantage. Marco got the ball in someone else’s penalty area and easily threw Becker. Note that in this episode, Liverpool’s defense played just disgusting.
At the beginning of the second half, Salah revived the intrigue. Mohamed got the ball in the penalty area of Real Madrid and accurately shot on goal Courtois. The referee waited for the video assistant’s decision and confirmed the goal.
“Real” was not taken aback and soon scored the third. Modric received a pass from Benzema, quickly burst into someone else’s penalty area from the right edge and passed to Vinicius. The Brazilian struck a touchdown and made the right decision by completing a double.
Liverpool tried to come up with something interesting in the attack, but Real defended well and did not allow the reigning champion of England to realize his rich attacking potential.
Real Madrid beat the Merseysides with the same score as in the Kiev Champions League final, acting without Varan, Ramos, Carvajal, as well as Ronaldo and Bale, who are no longer in the royal club. Let’s see what happens at Anfield.
Real Madrid – Liverpool 3: 1 (2: 0)
Goals: Винисиус, 27 (1: 0); Asensio, 37 (2: 0); Salah, 53 (2: 1); Vinicius, 65 (3: 1).
