How to watch Liverpool vs Real Madrid: Champions League live stream and free audio

How to watch Liverpool vs Real Madrid in the Champions League: Madrid visit Liverpool in a repeat of last season’s final. Here’s how to watch and listen for free.

Liverpool couldn’t beat Real Madrid when the Reds were arguably the world’s top side last season, so what chance now with the Anfield club enduring somewhat of a horror season?

Last year’s beaten finalists once again face their Kryptonite in the Champions League, having lost to Madrid in the 2018 and 2022 finals, as well as the 2021 quarter-finals.

The reasoning for these successive losses during an otherwise dominant era for the Reds is probably clear; as huge as Liverpool’s European pedigree is, Real Madrid’s aura and magic in the competition is simply greater.

This game is arguably the most glamorous game the Champions League can offer. The 14-times winners will fancy their chances of doing a number on the six-time winners again, in this two-legged affair.

However, Liverpool are often more comfortable as underdogs and have shown signs of life in the last couple of domestic wins against Everton and Newcastle. They’ll also have the Anfield crowd to rouse them in the first leg. This team in that stadium in this competition have been known to do some special things down the years.
