Here is your Liverpool morning digest for Wednesday, April 14.
Curtis Jones and Divock Origi weren't the only notable absentees from the session, with skipper Jordan Henderson still out and the centre-back trio of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip continuing their rehabilitation elsewhere.
Caoimhin Kelleher remains on the sidelines, although fellow goalkeepers Adrian, Jakub Ojrzynski and Harvey Davies were all present.
And alarm bells were temporarily sounded when Alisson Becker wasn't initially caught on camera.
However, it emerged there was no problem with the Brazilian, who is expected to feature against Real.

Liverpool get a look at potential Salah replacement
Mohamed Salah's unique profile will be incredibly difficult to replace once he eventually leaves Liverpool if Jurgen Klopp wants to retain the same threat, but interestingly, he's about to face a player who could be next in line, writes Josh Williams.
Leeds United are set to host the Reds at Elland Road on Monday evening, with Raphinha making quite the impression in the Premier League since transferring from Rennes last summer.
The Brazilian is still just 24-years-old and he's yet to enter what are believed to be the prime years of a player, but he ticks comparable boxes to Salah.
The South American is left-footed, quick across the ground and in his debut campaign in England, he's scored six goals and registered six assists from 23 starts.
Raphinha is currently ranked sixth in the Premier League for total key passes behind only Bruno Fernandes, Mason Mount, Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne and Pedro Neto, with a key pass defined as one that leads to a shot.
He's also 13th in the table for total shots, which indicates that he offers a two-pronged danger by creating for himself and for others.
Marcelo Bielsa's brand of football is arguably even more intense than Klopp's on Merseyside, but Raphinha has coped with the demands and thrived since making his move; he's clearly got a very high ceiling.
