Liverpool might be struggling in the Premier League, but Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish believes the Reds can win the Champions League this season.
There’s a likelihood that Chelsea and Liverpool can meet each other in the semi-finals of the Champions League, but first the two sides must beat their quarter-final opponents, Porto and Real Madrid respectively.
Kenny Dalglish believes his side will beat Chelsea if they both meet in the semifinal, and pointed to their 2004 victory where Luis Garcia scored an infamous ghost goal.
“[Liverpool] are still a threat,” Dalglish told talkSPORT.
“They’re still a team to be proud of and that can go places. They are still in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. When the draw came out, when have you ever been happy drawing Real Madrid?
“You were happy to draw Real Madrid because you’ve missed Bayern Munich and Man City. Those two get each other if they reach the semi-final.
“If they can beat Real Madrid they can go all the way to the final. The final just happens to be at one of the greatest moments in Liverpool’s history at the Attaturk Stadium in Istanbul.
“Chelsea came and beat us at Anfield [in the Premier League on March 4]. Thomas Tuchel’s done a great job with them. He’s been on a great run.
“We’ll beat them in the semi-final like before with Luis Garcia knocking it in!”
Someone needs to tell Dalglish there’s now a thing called VAR.
