Javier Mascherano believes Liverpool can save their season from ending in disappointment with three good results. On Tuesday they can reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League if they see off Real Madrid at Anfield.
"It is important that we do not slip away in the table," he said. "We must keep concentrating and see if we can get closer.
"We won't give up. Let's not talk about the title, let's make sure we win our matches.
"We must take it step by step, try to get to the Champions League quarter-finals and then turn our attention to the next two league games. The next three matches are very, very important for us."
