WATCH- Liverpool fans chant “Real Madrid players not allowed to sleep” before facing them in Champions League | Football

A video circulating on social media shows Liverpool fans setting off fireworks in the early hours of Tuesday morning near the hotel where Real Madrid players are staying.

The video shows massive fireworks and disturbing sounds that will make Royals lose sleep ahead of tonight’s match.

Striker Karim Benzema has returned to Real Madrid amid doubts over his fitness after being rested in Osasuna’s last La Liga game.

The reigning champions have key midfield duo Toni Kroos and Aurelian Someni out due to ill health.

German Kroos suffered a stomach problem that kept him out of the last two matches against Elche and Osasuna, while France’s Tkomane picked up a cold and missed the previous match during the two-goal win over Osasuna.

The list of absentees also included left-back Ferland Mendy and substitute striker Mariano Diaz, and coach Carlo Ancelotti replaced him with rookie striker Alvaro Rodriguez, who grabbed the spotlight with two goals against Osasuna.

Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti’s roster includes 4 players in the youth team (Castilla): Rodriguez, midfielders Mario Martin and Arepas and goalkeeper Luis Lopez.

The clash between the two clubs will repeat itself after last year’s final, when “Merengue” won with a goal from Vinicius Jr. to reach the 14th title, strengthening its record, and defeating Spanish champion Jurgen Klopp’s team in the 2018 final.
