Real Madrid team news

Eden Hazard

The big blow for Zinedine Zidane’s side is the loss of captain Sergio Ramos. A muscle injury suffered during the international break sees him ruled out yet again, despite having only just come back from another injury before the break.

On the flip side, however, they are boosted by the return to fitness of Eden Hazard, who has returned to training and is expected to be with the squad. The Belgian had been ruled out with yet another injury and has featured just once since January, but has made strides forward. Federico Valverde is also set to return in midfield.

Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane were rested at the weekend and started on the bench, likely with one eye on Liverpool’s midweek visit.

Liverpool team news

Diogo Jota

No surprises for Liverpool unfortunately, as long-term absentees mean they are still down on defensive strength.

Jurgen Klopp did claim that midfielder Jordan Henderson will be able to return to training in a few weeks’ time, but there is no chance of him returning for the Madrid fixture, and certainly not the first leg.

Diogo Jota came off the bench against Arsenal at the weekend and bagged a brace, giving Klopp a bit of a headache when trying to settle on a front three.
