Champions League: They will run out of luck – Carragher predicts Liverpool vs Real Madrid



Ex-Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher, has said he is “confident” that his former club will beat Real Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League final.

According to him, the LaLiga champions have “carried a lot of luck” so far.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have knocked out Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain on the way to the final.

But Carragher told Sky Bet’s The Overlap podcast: “I’ve watched Real Madrid in the Champions League this season and they’ve lost more games in the Champions League than Liverpool have lost all season in all competitions.

“Real Madrid are a very good team but they’re not as good as Man City and I don’t think they’re as good as Chelsea – even though they beat both of them.

“You can spin it both ways with the spirit, the winning, the coming back, but they’ve carried a lot of luck in those games, which you need. If you win every game in the last minute coming from behind if you’re that good a team you don’t get yourself in that position all the time.

“Man City should have battered them, they should have won [their semi-final first leg] 6-2 at home – and then they’re 3-0 down at home to Chelsea.

“Of course, Real can win – it’s a one-off game. I just think if City or Liverpool were playing Real Madrid in a one-off game, having their team and playing near their best, they’d win the game. I’m confident.
