The former Reds striker also insists that a draw would be the best result of the season for his ex club. However, he did say that it may be too late for the Brendan Rodgers to turn their campaign around.
The 36-year-old feels that the Merseyside club’s best chance against the Galacticos is to shut up shop and hope to hit them on the counter-attack. However, the loss of Daniel Sturridge makes even this difficult.
“The fans are not confident in their team right now and I don’t think Brendan Rodgers will be confident about playing Real Madrid, either,” the Englishman wrote in his Goal column.
“My friends are probably right – I think losing 2-0, even 3-0, would be a good result. If they got a draw it would be their best result of the season.
“Liverpool have no other option but to shut up shop, and try to hit Real on the counterattack.
“But I think it’s asking too much to expect a result. I can’t see where they are going to get the goals from.
“Losing Daniel Sturridge is desperate. That’s the player they need.”
Rodgers’ side play Madrid in the Group Stage and they will be hoping to get something out of the game to stop Basel or Ludogorets Razgrad taking an advantage in the race for qualification to the knockout rounds.
