Liverpool, Real Madrid set to clash in Champions League title game

Posted May 27, 2018

Real Madrid play Liverpool at Kiev's Olympic Stadium in the final of the 2017/18 edition of the UEFA Champions League. "No manager is interested in that - we are only interested in performing", the Liverpool manager said when asked about the Ballon d'Or at his pre-final press conference.

Ronaldo can join an elite group of just 10 other players to win five European Cups should Madrid win in Kiev.

Egypt Independent reported that Sawiris expressed disagreement with calls for Salah to break his fast on the Liverpool-Real Madrid match day.

Bale was named on the bench for the Champions League final in Kiev. "The club has in its DNA to go for the big things". We are Liverpool. We are here because we are Liverpool.

Don't fear the prospect of a Champions League final and instead look at it as a night when your career can be defined, the one game that can turn you into a hero forever more. "The experience they have is a big advantage, 100 percent, to feel more confident but in the game the experience doesn't help all the time".

30 minutes until KO: STAT: Real Madrid name the same XI that started the final against Juventus last year, while nine of the players selected by Zidane also started against Atletico Madrid two years ago.

Once again, Liverpool needed more than a few strokes of luck to come through that game with a win and Klopp's side will require more of the same if they are to add to the wonderful history of the club with a sixth European Cup win.

Liverpool are ranked joint third overall with five European Cups but have not been in a final since losing 2-1 to AC Milan in 2007, last winning the trophy in 2005 on penalties after a remarkable fightback against the same club.

Putting the rumors to rest, Liverpool physiotherapist Ruben has said Salah will break the fast to be in the best condition possible.

"There are so many things you have to bring to the pitch to win a game at that level..."

Also, the coach Zidane has won a historic consecutive Champions League and winning it thrice in a row would be an extremely hard task.
