RM vs LIV Dream11 Prediction: Two of the most successful sides of the UEFA Champions League lock horns as Real Madrid host Liverpool in the first leg of the quarter-final. The Los Blancos made it to the quarter-final by the virtue of a comfortable 4-1 aggregate win after a 3-1 win at home succeeding a 1-0 away against Atalanta BC. After a shaky start to the La Liga, Madrid are on course to join FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid for a three-way title race in the domestic season. They also have managed to eke out nine wins in their last eleven fixtures.
Liverpool come into this game with high confidence in a disappointing Premier League season. They are way outside the top four in the domestic season thus making the Champions League the biggest potential to win silverware. The Reds eased past RB Leipzig with an aggregate scoreline of 2-0 in the Round of 16 to set up a quarter-final clash with the Spanish Giants.

MID: Thiago, Sadio Mane, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric
FW: Mohammed Salah (C), Karim Benzema (VC)
Karim Benzema: Benzema has scored 18 goals and made 6 assists in the La Liga. The Frenchman has also found the back of the net on 6 occasions in 5 Champions League fixtures.
Mohammed Salah: The Egyptian will be in charge of finding goals for his side. He has scored 18 goals and made 3 assists in the Premier League and will be hoping to continue his form.
X-factors, differential picks
Luka Modric: With the absence of key defenders at the back, the onus will be on Modric to dictate the midfield and cut short Liverpool’s supply to its forwards. Modric can be the x-factor in Wednesday’s clash.
Thiago: Thiago has had an underwhelming season so far with low levels of involvement in his team’s goals scored so far. With his return to Champions League football, Klopp will depend on the Spaniard to at least win the midfield battle for his side and create key openings.

Both sides have several of their key players unavailable of the clash thus making it an unpredictable Champions League tie. However, Zidane’s men are expected to prevail at their home venue if they manage to keep things tight at the back.
