Jurgen Klopp has revealed how his Liverpool team intend to overturn a two-goal deficit against Real Madrid on Wednesday.
Real Madrid defeated Pep Guardiola’s side 3-1 in Spain a week ago, leaving the English side with a mountain to climb in the return leg at Anfield.
The German boss is upbeat about the Reds’ chances of pulling off yet another famous comeback but feels his team must improve defensively to do so.
What’s important is the performance, we have to play like ourselves and play as good as we can, we have to try to win the game and then we will see what the result leads us to,” Klopp told the press conference on Tuesday.
“With the quality that Real Madrid has you have to defend on your absolutely highest level and that is what we didn’t do in the first leg.
“It’s always about winning football games and that is the target for tomorrow night. If that will end up in a comeback, I have no idea.
“We have to be in a mood to start believing again and, if that happens and we can see that it’s possible, then we have a chance, but it’s still incredibly difficult.”
