Robertson expresses need to make Real Madrid more uncomfortable

Liverpool defender, Andy Robertson, has spoken of the need to make life uncomfortable for Real Madrid when the Reds take on Los Blancos in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Real Madrid lead the quarter-final tie after a 3-1 win in the first leg, but Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to bounce back and reach the semi-final.

Speaking ahead of the game, Robertson said, reports: “Real Madrid are one of the best at controlling games. When they’re in winning positions, they’ve got the likes of [Luka] Modric and [Toni] Kroos that can just stand on the ball for what feels like 10 minutes and you can’t get it off them.

“But we need to put these players under pressure, we need to put them all under pressure, we need to make their life a bit more uncomfortable than we did last week. It felt as if we gave all of them too much time on the ball, really, so we need to make it uncomfortable for them.”

The 27-year-old also stated the need to quickly recover lost possession and to create a top quality pressing game.

Zinedine Zidane’s men head into the game on the back of a 2-1 win over Barcelona in the El Clasico.

Liverpool on the other hand are fresh from their 2-1 comeback win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.
