Real Madrid great Roberto Carlos has said they’ll be far too strong for Champions League quarterfinal opponents Liverpool.
Liverpool were tied against the La Liga giants in the quarter-finals of the competition on Friday, in what is a repeat of the 2017/18 European Cup final.
That clash, which Madrid won 3-1 after two calamitous errors from goalkeeper Loris Karius, was marred when Los Blancos skipper Ramos fouled Salah in the 22nd minute – prematurely ending the Egypt speedster’s involvement in the showpiece event after his stunning 44-goal season.
“Salah is not even going to get close to Sergio,” Carlos said. “It will be an action that is going to be talked about a lot.”
The Madrid great also stressed how important it will be for his former side to get a good result in the first-leg at home against Jurgen Klopp’s side but believes the Premier League champions should be the most worried side.
“We are going to play against a good team,” he told AS .
“The first game is at home, Real Madrid’s momentum is great and they must decide the tie at home.
“The important thing is that Zidane has all his players ready, that they come back as quickly as possible. It is easy for him to be a coach here because he has the best at his disposal. If a game does not go well, he has eight players of the highest level waiting to play. You have to be concerned with Liverpool, but they more.”
