According to Jose Luis Sanchez on El Chiringuito TV, the UEFA Champions League draw that pits Liverpool against Real Madrid in the Round of 16 has gone down well within the Merengues’ dressing room.

Having finished on top of Group F in the first round of the competition, the current holders of the Champions League title could have faced some tough ties against the likes of PSG, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Eintracht Frankfurt.

But what the draw threw was a rematch of the last season’s Champions League final as Real Madrid will again lock horns with Liverpool, after having beaten them in that main event.

Prior to that, Los Blancos had gotten the better of Jurgen Klopp’s side in the 2020/21 Champions League quarter-finals as well and in the finals of the 2017/18 finals.

Despite having come out on top in recent meetings, Real Madrid will be in for a stern challenge against Liverpool. But the report states that the dressing room has not gone down too badly in the dressing room.

It is claimed that the Real Madrid players see the tie as fair and are content with it.

The two teams will lock horns in late February in the first leg, which will take place at Anfield. The second leg of the Round of 16 contest will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu in early March.

Liverpool have not made the most ideal of starts to the ongoing campaign. But with the UCL tie still months away, they have plenty of time to turn things around.

Spain will begin their UEFA Euro 2024 journey in a little over an hour with a clash against Croatia at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

Ahead of the match, Luis de la Fuente has announced the starting lineup that will be taking the field for La Roja and two Real Madrid stars feature in the team.

Indeed, Los Blancos’ captain Nacho Fernandez gets the nod as one of the centre-backs amid some injury concerns for Spain.

Meanwhile, Dani Carvajal holds on to his usual place as the right-back for La Roja against Croatia.

There is no place in the starting lineup for Real Madrid forward Joselu, though, with De la Fuente preferring Alvaro Morata as his No. 9 instead.

Meanwhile, Croatia have also announced their starting lineup, and Real Madrid midfielder and legend Luka Modric starts in midfield and also captains the team against two of his club teammates today.

Former Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic also features for Croatia against Spain.
