Liverpool travel to Madrid on Tuesday for the chance to avenge their 2018 Champions League Final loss to Real as these two European superpowers collide in this season’s quarter-finals.
Read on to see our top Odds Picks for what’s set to be an unmissable clash as these two giants look to seize the initiative in this first-leg clash.

Our Top Odds Pick – The Draw – 5/2 at BetVictor
This may be a battle between two of the most successful teams in Champions League history but it’s been a tough old season for Liverpool and Real Madrid so far.
Both sides come into this with major absences and you can easily make an argument for either side to take advantage in this first-leg tie.
Liverpool have been far more consistent in Europe this season than domestically, winning six of their last eight in the tournament, and they also arrive here on the back of a 3-0 thrashing of Arsenal at the weekend.
That victory was their third win and clean sheet on the bounce but this will be a tough encounter against a Real side that are now unbeaten in 11.
With a weekend encounter against Barcelona coming up, Zidane will be demanding that his Real side keep that momentum going.
In such a tough game to call, the safe bet is the draw, which will hopefully leave both teams with all to play for in the second-leg at Anfield.
Our Long Shot – Mohamed Salah to score the first goal – 19/5 at 888sport
With Sergio Ramos ruled out due to injury, we’re robbed of a reunion between him and Mo Salah after their controversial clash in 2018.
However, we’re expecting Salah to be in the headlines once more by hopefully nabbing the first goal on Tuesday.
The Egyptian has scored in five of his last seven Champions League matches – including in both legs against RB Leipzig – and fresh from a goal against Arsenal at the weekend, we’re backing him to grab the opener here.
