The Premier League giants lost the first leg by a whopping 5-2 score line, which means they will have to pull off a miracle at the Bernabeu.

Liverpool are gearing up for arguably their toughest game of the season. The Premier League giants will head to Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday for the 2nd leg of their round of 16 showdown, with Klopp's men needing a miracle in order to make the quarterfinals.

The English club head into this tie having lost the 1st leg by a whopping 5-2 scoreline. Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah scored inside the first 15 minutes of that Anfield encounter, but braces from Vinicius Jr. and Karim Benzema — as well as a second-half header from Eder Militao — helped Los Blancos turn the game around.

As a result, the Reds will need to overturn this large deficit and win by a three-goal margin just to take this tie into extra time. Liverpool were faced with a similar dilemma against Barcelona in the 2018/19 semifinals but won 4-0 in the 2nd leg to overturn the scoreline.

However, that occurred at Anfield. Never before has a club come back from this large of a deficit when the 2nd leg was played away from home. This means Klopp's men must pull off something that has never been done before if they are to make the quarterfinals.

But does the German coach back his side to achieve this historic result at the Bernabeu? Speaking ahead of the game, the former Dortmund boss gave an honest and humble — yet inspirational — response to his club's hopes of overturning the deficit.

"If there is only a 1% chance I'd like to give it a try."

"As difficult as it is (to win the game), that's probably possible. Not likely, but possible, and for that we are here," the Anfield boss later added. Check out his words in the video below.

Unfortunately, the Premier League outfit will head to the Bernabeu with a midfield crisis as the visitors could be without Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson, and Stefan Bajcetic. It will thus be interesting to see who will partner Harvey Elliott and Fabinho in the middle of the park.
