Jose Enrique says he can’t wait to face Champions League holders Real Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday.

The Reds face the unenviable task of taking on los Blancos after Carlo Ancelotti’s side were emphatic 5-0 winners against Levante at the weekend.

Liverpool edged to a 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Sunday as Enrique started his first Premier League game of the season.

And the 28-year-old, who previously played for La Liga sides Celta Vigo and Villarreal, is relishing the visit of the European champions.

Earlier this week, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers warned the Reds couldn’t focus all their energy on stopping Cristiano Ronaldo, who has already scored 15 goals in seven La Liga games this season.

“He’s a player off the charts. His evolution in recent years, the way how he has become a goalscorer has been amazing,” Rodgers said.

“We need to know to stop him but there is danger in other parts of the field. You have (Luka) Modric, (Toni) Kroos – wonderful technicians who can play short, long.

“I’m also a big admirer of Sergio Ramos since his young days at Sevilla where he came through the system before making a move and then making to over 100 caps for Spain.”
