Statistically Liverpool have a slight advantage in possession of Los Blancos, but the total shots from Jordan Henderson and his friends are far more, 8 shots and 5 of them on target were thwarted by goalkeeper Courtois.
Meanwhile Carlo Ancelotti’s side had only one shot, that too in the last minute of the first half, and Karim Benzema got the ball home!
Unfortunately Karim Benzema’s goal after the chaos in the Liverpool goal mouth was annulled by the referee after a VAR review. The score was still 0-0 until halftime.
