If There’s A One Percent Chance, We Will Win — Jurgen Klopp



Jurgen Klopp -- If There's A One Percent Chance, We Will Win

Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, has acknowledged the huge challenge facing his team as they prepare for their crucial Champions League last-16 second-leg tie against Real Madrid. Klopp has admitted that his team has only a “one percent chance” of overturning the 5-2 deficit from the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Liverpool squad had initially taken a 2-0 lead, but Madrid staged a remarkable comeback, securing a three-goal advantage, which left Liverpool with a mountain to climb in the return leg.

Jurgen Klopp and his team famously staged a remarkable comeback against Barcelona in the 2019 semi-final second-leg, defeating the Spanish giants 4-0 at Anfield after losing 3-0 at Camp Nou. Klopp remains hopeful that his players can produce another historic win on Wednesday.

Klopp admitted in a recent press conference that, “What I said after the game three weeks ago was that Madrid are through to the next round. But three weeks later, we know there is a game to play and if it is only a one percent chance, I would like to give it a try.”

Despite the daunting odds, Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that his players can draw inspiration from their past successes and produce a memorable performance in Madrid.

The German coach will be relying on the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Cody Gakpo, and Darwin Nunez to lead Liverpool’s charge in attack. Liverpool’s defense will also need to be at their best to keep Real Madrid’s potent attack at bay, with Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Ibrahima Konate expected to be crucial to the team’s defensive efforts.

The match is set to be an intense and dramatic affair, with both teams desperate to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Liverpool will need to produce a flawless performance if they are to stand any chance of overturning the deficit, but with the team’s never-say-die attitude and Klopp’s tactical nous, anything is possible. The footballing world will be eagerly anticipating what promises to be a thrilling encounter on Wednesday.
