Andy Robertson has urged his Liverpool teammates to be “more switched on” in their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid, with it “do or die” at Anfield.
The Reds picked up a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid last night, with Vinicius Junior, Marco Asensio and Mohamed Salah all marking their names on the scoresheet.
After the Game Liverpool’s left-back has emphasised the need for the Reds to “create our own atmosphere” and take the fight to Real.
“It’ll be another empty stadium. But we need to create our own atmosphere,” he told Sony Sports.
“It’s do or die. The next leg, you’re out or you’re in the semi-final. That’s what we’re fighting for.
“Of course, having 55,000 Liverpool fans in the stadium would make a huge difference, but that’s not going to happen.
“So we need to create our own atmosphere, we need to be better, we need to be more switched on and we need to cause them more problems. If we do that, let’s see where it takes us.
“We know we’re up against a very experienced team, they’ve won this competition more times than any other team in Europe and it’s a tough task.
“But we’ll be up for it, and hopefully we can play better than we did this week.”
