Champions League: Klopp Provides Nunez Injury Update


Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp is confident that Darwin Nunez will be fit to play against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Liverpool will face the defending champions in a repeat of last season final at Anfield.

Nunez was on target for Liverpool in the 2-0 win over Newcastle, but he was forced off after the hour mark.

“There is a chance. We have to see how he is today. When we know that we will make a decision.”

Nunez has scored 11 goals for Liverpool in all competitions this season.

Vinicius scored the only goal in the encounter in the final last season to lead Real Madrid to Champions League glory in Paris.

Klopp has no special plan in place to stop the Brazilian winger.

“You try to deny passes to them but the problem we have is if you can defend Vinicius properly, then there’s [Karim] Benzema or Rodrygo or whoever. Then there’s [Luka] Modric. They have world-class players, you have to defend them collectively.”

Liverpool have won their last two Premier League games against Everton and Newcastle United to recover from their poor form.
