Real Madrid vs Liverpool Kick Off Time

Event details:
NAME: Real Madrid – Liverpool
DATE: 15 Mar 2023
TIME: 20:00 UTC
VENUE: Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid, Spain



Needing to conjure up a slice of Bernabeu magic to prolong their European journey, Liverpool make the journey to the Spanish capital to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday night.

Carlo Ancelotti’s continental veterans fought back from 2-0 down to record a phenomenal 5-2 win in the first leg at Anfield three weeks ago, and only the most calamitous of calamitous collapses would see the tickets to the quarter-finals change hands.



Rivalling Courtois for blunder of the night with a pass straight to the leg of Vinicius Junior, Alisson Becker conceded twice to the Brazilian starlet in the remaining minutes of the first half, before Eder Militao’s header and Karim Benzema’s brace put the cherry on a famous Merseyside mauling.



Seemingly exhausting all of their match-winning energy at Anfield, the reigning La Liga champions failed to prevail in their three subsequent domestic showdowns – including a 1-0 loss to Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final – but they reverted to type with a comfortable 3-1 win over Espanyol at the weekend.

With Benzema kept in bubble wrap, Vinicius and Militao were on target once again alongside Marco Asensio as Los Blancos remain nine points worse off than runaway leaders Barcelona, but a 300th Champions League match now steals the spotlight amid their top-flight misfortunes.



From the last 27 times that Real have won the first leg of a Champions League tie away from home, they have progressed from 26 of them – only going down to Erik ten Hag’s 2018-19 Ajax luminaries in that time – but they will not be taking any leaves out of the Dutchman’s book here following Manchester United’s Anfield humiliation
