Champions League: They’ve problems – Rafa Benitez exposes Real Madrid’s weakness, sends message to Klopp

Former Newcastle United manager, Rafael Benitez has insisted that Real Madrid’s major weakness so far this season is that they do not have a left-back.

Benitez also urged Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp to put his best team to face Real Madrid when both teams clash in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The Spaniard, who has coached both Liverpool and Real Madrid in the past, told Sky Sports: “It depends on what kind of attack he [Jurgen Klopp] has in his head for Real Madrid because they’ve had problems in the left-back position.

“They have played [Eduardo] Camavinga there, but that is a problem because he’s a midfielder, so he could easily start [Mohamed] Salah, but then they could put [David] Alaba on the left like they did the other day and it will be more difficult.

“I am glad he gave minutes to [Diogo] Jota and [Roberto] Firmino. But if I was the manager, I would put my best team out there in terms of fitness and confidence.”
