Liverpool has been given a massive opportunity in the top four competition, and Klopp will have no excuse if he does not take advantage of it.

Liverpool has been given a fantastic opportunity to qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season.

Thus far, the Reds have had a miserable season. After chasing the quadruple for the majority of last season, Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool are already out of both domestic cup competitions this season, and their Champions League ambitions are hanging by a thread.

Nevertheless, Liverpool were defeated 5-2 at Anfield last week in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter by reigning champions Real Madrid, thereby ending the Reds’ chances of progressing to the next round of the competition.

Meanwhile, the club’s Premier League record has been equally poor. Despite a mini-revival in February in which Klopp’s men won two critical back-to-back games against Everton and Newcastle, they remain a long way from the top four.

Liverpool sit seventh in the rankings, nine points behind Tottenham Hotspur for the final Champions League spot.

Liverpool’s fantastic Champions League chance

Despite their terrible form, Liverpool’s chances of qualifying for next year’s Champions League have improved.

Actually, the Reds will take a vacation later this month after Fulham reached the FA Cup quarter-finals.

As a result of the FA Cup quarter-final matches taking place on March 17, Liverpool’s game against Fulham, planned for Saturday 18 March, has been postponed.

In turn, due to the international break at the end of March, Klopp’s team will have a 17-day gap between games.

On Wednesday, March 15, Liverpool will travel to Real Madrid for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 contest, seeking to overcome a three-goal deficit.

Nevertheless, the Merseyside club is not scheduled to play again until Saturday, April 1, when they face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Of course, the extra training days or time off for the players to recover could be crucial for Liverpool’s Champions League aspirations in May.

Liverpool has been given a massive opportunity in the top four competition, and Klopp will have no excuse if he does not take advantage of it.
