Jamie Carragher has dropped a prediction for the upcoming Liverpool vs Real Madrid clash on May 28.
The teams will meet each other in the Champions League final in Paris.
Ahead of the tie, the pundit shared his verdict and admitted he is ‘confident’ Jurgen Klopp’s side could beat the La Liga champions.
“I’ve watched Real Madrid in the Champions League this season and they’ve lost more games in the Champions League than Liverpool have lost all season in all competitions.
“Real Madrid are a very good team but they’re not as good as Man City and I don’t think they’re as good as Chelsea – even though they beat both of them.
“You can spin it both ways with the spirit, the winning, the coming back, but they’ve carried a lot of luck in those games, which you need. If you win every game in the last minute coming from behind, if you’re that good a team you don’t get yourself in that position all the time.
“Man City should have battered them, they should have won [their semi-final first leg ] 6-2 at home – and then they’re 3-0 down at home to Chelsea.
“Of course, Real can win – it’s a one-off game. I just think if City or Liverpool were playing Real Madrid in a one-off game, having their team and playing near their best, they’d win the game. I’m confident.” Carragher added.
