STAR PREVIEW Real Madrid v Liverpool

first_img[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here’s been little sign of a return to form for Liverpool since Real Madrid won the reverse leg 3-0 at Anfield and this looks a bridge too far for them at the Bernabeu.Since the drubbing in the reverse leg Liverpool have had a 0-0 home draw against Hull, a 2-1 win over Liverpool and a 1-0 beating from Newcastle at the weekend when they looked particularly lacklustre.Real Madrid are scoring goals for fun and have scored at least three goals in their last six matches and averaging over four in their last 10 games!And just when you thought things couldn’t get much harder for Liverpool – up pops the news that Gareth Bale could be playing again for Real Madrid.Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti said: “He’s ready to play. I don’t know if he will play from the off or on the bench.”And For Liverpool it gets worse. Daniel Sturridge is “highly unlikely” to make a comeback despite travelling to Madrid because of a thigh and calf injury.So where does that leave me for a bet?Real Madrid v LiverpoolChampions League Group Stage7.45pm LIVE ON ITVHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Oct 2014 ChampionsL Liverpool 0-3 Real MadridMar 2009 ChampionsL Liverpool 4-0 Real MadridFeb 2009 ChampionsL Real Madrid 0-1 LiverpoolMay 1982 European Cup Liverpool 1-0 Real MadridRegular readers will know I don’t often play at odds-on but tonight I’m going to make an exception and have a lumpy bet on Real Madrid HT/FT at around 8/13 with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK REAL MADRID HT/FT at around 8/13 for 26 points with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: LOSS 30.67 POINTSWhat’s your view?
