Zinedine Zidane knows that domestic form will be meaningless as Liverpool and Real Madrid will clash in the Champions League quarterfinals.
Liverpool is capable of two outstanding results against Real Madrid, believes Zinedine Zidane, even though the Premier League champions are struggling domestically
Despite Liverpool’s struggles in the Premier League, Zidane expects a difficult quarter-final challenge for his side, which is six points behind the leaders in Spain.
“We cannot say that it is a bad draw or that it is good because what happens throughout the season does not matter,” Zidane told a news conference ahead of Madrid’s LaLiga clash with Celta Vigo on Saturday.
“It doesn’t matter how Liverpool are in their league today because at any time, in a tie, they can play their cards without looking at how they are doing in their championship.”
“We know who Liverpool are and that is not going to change. It’s like us, who have been on the edge of the precipice, but we are alive in both competitions.”
“It will be a match between two teams that have won many Champions League [trophies], a very complicated tie. At that level it is always very difficult to win.”
