Liverpool versus Real Madrid
Liverpool and Real Madrid have a rich past together. In the group stage of the 2014-2015 season, the Spanish team won both home and away matches.
Karim Benzema has thoroughly enjoyed his matchups with the Reds. Benzema has scored 16 goals in 23 Champions League matches against English clubs, which is his best record against teams from a single country.
Last season, he scored seven goals against English teams as Real Madrid won the Champions League for the fourteenth time. Against Liverpool, he will attempt to increase that number.
