Henderson can't wait to face the current Champions League holders on what is likely to be a tremendous European night at Anfield.
"I was pleased when the draw was made because you want to be playing against best teams. Real Madrid were the best team in Europe and have the best players too. Facing the likes of Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo can only make you improve and help your own game.
"It is a big game for us and a big test. But we'll go into it and play without any fear."
