Real Madrid duo star left out of the match against Liverpool

According to information from the Dailymail, Kroos, and Tchouameni will not be included in Real Madrid’s squad for the first leg against Liverpool, which will take place at 3:00 AM on February 22 (Vietnam time). Karim Benzema will return to the team after missing the weekend’s La Liga game.

Kroos is not in the best physical condition due to illness, while Tchouameni is currently suffering from the flu. As a result, the reigning Champions League champions will be without their two best midfielders for their trip to Anfield.

Instead, Coach Ancelotti’s midfield will rely on veteran Luka Modric, as well as midfielders Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Mario Martin, Sergio Arribas, and Dani Ceballos.

Real Madrid is currently in good form. After losing to Mallorca in early February, the team has won four consecutive games in the FIFA Club World Cup and La Liga, scoring 15 goals. “Los Blancos” have kept a clean sheet in their last two wins in La Liga.

Real Madrid’s two most important attacking players in last season’s Champions League campaign, Benzema and Vinicius Jr, are both regaining their form. Benzema scored a brace against Elche, while Vinicius provided the first assist in the 2-0 win over Osasuna.

Meanwhile, Liverpool is slowly regaining their form with a 2-0 win over Newcastle on February 19.

Liverpool and Real Madrid are familiar opponents in the Champions League. “Los Blancos” have shown superiority by winning five of the nine meetings, drawing one and losing three.
