Liverpool will run out at the Bernabeu safe in the knowledge their chances of recording a famous victory are slimmer than Neil Warnock praising Premier League officiating this season.

The swashbuckling goal-grabbers of last season are still on a protracted summer holiday or lost forever it would seem thanks to the departure of maverick talent Luis Suarez.

As a result Liverpool were schooled 3-0 at Anfield in the first of two Champions League instalments against Real Madrid – a far cry from the 4-0 triumph back in 2009 in the English side’s favour – and now the Reds are untouchable 9/1 shots for the win in Spain.

Fingers have to be pointed at the manager and many of the players he’s brought in, who we’ve kindly arranged in our Flop-O-meter.

rodgers-flop-meter (1)

Mario Balotelli – No Premier goal to his name so far is a dismal return considering time spent on the pitch by the barmy Italian

Dejan Lovren – Early promise has given way to moments of indecision and generally dodgy defending

Lazar Markovic – Limited exposure, but so far limited ability by the looks of things

Alberto Moreno – Goal at Tottenham promised much, but has twice dallied in the box and given away goals at Manchester City and now Newcastle. Can he defend?

Adam Lallana – Has shown glimpses of his class, but needs a run in the team

Divok Origi – The best of the lot by far, only problem is he’s playing in France
