Liverpool have experienced some incredible European nights down the years, especially against Spanish opposition.

And while the last meeting with Real Madrid – 2018's 3-1 Champions League final defeat – may leave a sour taste in the mouth, they've had better times against the same team to look back on fondly.

In 2008/09, Liverpool Rafa Benitez’s men destroyed the mighty Los Blancos 4-0.

Liverpool already held a 1-0 lead from the first leg at the Bernabeu, so you don’t need to be Rachel Riley to calculate that it ended in a 5-0 aggregate win for the Reds, and progress to the quarter-finals.

It’s a happy time for Liverpool fans to recall – particularly as the two sides meet at the same stage of this year's competition. History will repeat itself, surely?
