Gullit insisted that Liverpool need to improve for the final

during the UEFA Champions League Qualifying Play-Offs round second leg match between Liverpool FC and 1899 Hoffenheim at Anfield on August 23, 2017 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Ruud Gullit believes that Liverpool simply can’t allow playing like they did in the semifinals against AS Roma – otherwise, they can receive a harsh lesson by Real Madrid as they are far more experienced.

Jürgen Klopp’s men will have to play more focused and be better defensively if they want to win the famous trophy – because Real Madrid will be able to punish every single one of their mistakes.

The Dutch legend spoke about Liverpool’s chances as he said, according to Team Talk:

“If Liverpool are going to play like they did in Rome, they are not going to win the Champions League.”

“It is fantastic to have Liverpool in the final, but everyone must realise that they only scraped through at the end.”

“I have read the verdict of some former Liverpool stars and they are euphoric. They are not impressed by Real Madrid. They think Liverpool have a serious chance of winning.”

“But the players and coaching staff of Real will have watched Liverpool’s second game against Roma. And I think they will have drawn the strong conclusion that they have more of a chance to win the final than Liverpool.”
