This week, Liverpool will face off against Real Madrid in the Round of 16 of the Champions League. It will be the first time that Jurgen Klopp will face his former club since he took over as manager.
The last time these two clubs faced off was in the finals of the Champions League, which were in 2018 and 2022. Under the management of Carlo Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid won the competition in 2019.
The match features several subplots. For instance, as he chases his fifth championship as a coach, Carlo Ancelotti will be facing off against Jurgen Klopp, who will be hoping to revive Liverpool’s inconsistent season in 2023.
