Liverpool must drop Mario Balotelli because they cannot afford any "passengers" when they host Real Madrid in the Champions League Wednesday, former Anfield defender Jamie Carragher said.Italy striker Balotelli has scored only once in nine appearances since signing from AC Milan for 16 million pounds ($25.84 million) and has often cut a frustrated figure during a series of low-key displays.Liverpool are yet to recreate the sparkling form that saw them finish second in the Premier League last season and are currently third in their group having suffered defeat against FC Basel earlier this month.The former defender, who won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005, says manager Brendan Rodgers must play fleet-footed Raheem Sterling in favor of Balotelli to ensure the hosts stretch the game.
