Real Madrid Significant Favourite To Defeat Liverpool at Home

Published on October 29th, 2014 2:24 am EST

One of the most followed matches of next week's slate of Champions League Group Stage games will be Real Madrid playing host to Liverpool.

The game features two of the most storied franchises in the history of football and many of the game's greatest players.

In addition, the contest is a very important one for Liverpool as they currently find themselves in a three-way tie for third place in Group B, while Real Madrid is the clear leader of the group. Here are the current standings as of this moment:

Real Madrid, 3-0-0, 9 points
Ludogorets Razgrad, 1-0-2, 3 points
Liverpool, 1-0-2, 3 points
FC Basel, 1-0-2, 3 points

In addition to creating some separation between themselves and both Ludogorets Razgrad and FC Basel, Liverpool would be well-advised to turn in a strong effort against Real Madrid next week. This will be easier said than done, however, as Real Madrid is one of the top clubs in the world and will be playing this game at the friendly confines of their own stadium.

Real Madrid has virtually no pressure on them in this match, as they are already a virtual lock to advance past the Group Stage.

Liverpool, on the other hand, is in the fight of their lives right now and could sorely use at least a single point.
