2 Anfield – When Liverpool produced an impossible comeback against Barcelona, Anfield was a fortress. However, Liverpool has been struggling at home with just one win in nine.
3 Zidane effect – Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is one of the most tactical bosses in World football and has the pedigree to withstand the barrage of pressing Jurgen Klopp’s team will throw at them.
