Shearer thinks Klopp’s forward line would destroy Real Madrid, Liverpool fans react

Liverpool have not yet made it into the final of the Champions League, but some are already tipping Jurgen Klopp’s side to go all the way.

This evening, the Merseyside outfit will take on Roma in the second leg of their semi-final tie.

Klopp and his men currently hold a three-goal advantage following a dominant 5-2 victory in the first meeting at Anfield.

However, the two away goals struck by Roma gives them hope heading into the decider, particularly as they managed to cut down the same lead to knock out Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

Whoever progresses this evening will take on Real Madrid in the showpiece in Kiev after the Spanish outfit ousted Bayern Munich.

Zinedine Zidane’s side earned a 2-1 victory in the first leg at the Allianz Arena, and they came through an entertaining encounter at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night.

Los Blancos were not at their scintillating best, and in truth have not been so throughout the whole tournament, but they managed to come from behind inside the first 11 minutes thanks to an equaliser from Karim Benzema.

The forward struck again to give Madrid the lead, but he was helped along by some horror goalkeeping from Sven Ulreich.

James Rodriguez, who is on loan at Bayern from Madrid, found an equaliser just after the hour mark, but Zidane’s men saw out the match to book a place in their third successive final.

Given that both sides showed weaknesses during the display, England legend Alan Shearer suggested on Twitter that Liverpool would be capable of beating either team.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been the men leading the line for Liverpool this season, and all three scored in the first leg against Roma.

Reds fans have been posting their thoughts on Shearer’s claims via Reddit.
