Liverpool will try to beat Madrid with 1% chance: Klopp
The Liverpool coach says his team scoring a comeback against Real Madrid is not likely, but possible.
German coach Jurgen Klopp pointed out on Tuesday that his Liverpool team might only have a one percent chance of beating Real Madrid to reach the Champions League quarter-finals, but they will try to use it
The coach had admitted, after his team's 5-2 first-leg defeat by the European champions at Anfield in February, that his side's hopes of progress were extinguished.
"I said three weeks ago, Madrid with their result are through to the next round, now we are here three weeks later and we know there's a game to play," Klopp told a news conference.
"If there's only a one percent chance, I would like to give it a try. We're here to play an extremely strong opponent and try to win the game tomorrow," he stressed.
He continued, "As difficult as it is, it's not likely, but possible. For that, we are here, we'll see where it leads us to."
"But it's clear, we're not here telling Madrid, 'be careful, we're coming!' -- that's not the situation we are in," Klopp added.
Despite his team's attacking quality, the German coach did admit that making up three goals at the Santiago Bernabeu was a big challenge.
"I can't sit here and say three goals is no problem, of course it's a problem. And three is only possible if we don't concede, which makes it even more unlikely," he said.
