Jurgen Klopp hopes for a comeback against Real Madrid

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants his team cling to the tiniest chance of Liverpool reaching the Champions League quarter-final.

The Reds are hoping to overturn a three-goal deficit against Real Madrid in their second-leg tie at the Santiago Bernabeu tonight.

Liverpool will head into this game on the back of a 1-0 defeat against relegation-threatened Bournemouth.

They are currently sixth in the Premier League table and lost seven out of their eight Premier League defeats away from home.

But Jurgen Klopp believes it’s not over for his side and would try for a comeback even if there’s only a one percent chance.

“Three weeks ago after the game I said that with that result, Madrid were through to the next round,” Klopp told a news conference. “Now we know there’s a game to play.

“(Even) if there’s only one percent chance (for us to overturn the result), I’d like to give it a try.

“We’re here to play an extremely strong opponent and try to win the game. And as difficult as it is, that’s probably possible. Not likely but possible, and for that we’re here. We respect the competition and the opponent too much not to look forward to this game.”
