Wednesday Premier League & La Liga picks from Miller: Newcastle vs Liverpool and Elche vs Real Madrid
Both Liverpool and Real Madrid came into the 2020-21 season as reigning champions, looking to go back-to-back.
But both also have found their leagues much tougher so far than last season. Liverpool finds itself just , with the same amount of wins as three other teams. Real Madrid is actually , having played two more games.
Today, both teams need to go in the road as heavy favorites and keep winning, to put the pressure on the trailing clubs. I would expect that to happen.
