How to follow the Champions League final

  • Real Madrid team news Bale dropped for Kiev final

Salah has scored 44 goals in his debut season as a Liverpool player, three short of the all-time club record set by Ian Rush in 1984. "I am pretty sure in the second before the game Real Madrid will be more confident than we are, but the game doesn't end in that second, it only starts", Klopp said.

I would love to have played in a European Cup final during my time at Liverpool and the great First Division title winning team we had in the 1987/88 season would have had a real chance of winning the ultimate prize in club football were it not for the ban on English clubs denying us our chance to compete.

Bravery in game-changing moments will be key, but in a Real Madrid team that have triumphed in three of the past four Champions League finals, Liverpool are facing a side highly experienced in this environment.

Egypt Independent reported that Sawiris expressed disagreement with calls for Salah to break his fast on the Liverpool-Real Madrid match day. "We need to play very well to win the game and inside the dressing room we know we are not favourites". When the whistle goes that is a different story, but when we arrive in Kiev, when we see all the Liverpool fans, when we go on the pitch for the warm-up, we have to enjoy it and make yourself ready.


Ronaldo struck for Manchester United against Chelsea in the 2008 Champions League final and hit the last goal from the penalty spot in Real's 4-1 win in extra-time over Atletico Madrid in the 2014 final.

But when the whistle blows, Klopp believes the spirit shown by his players on their "exceptional" run to the final could be enough to show Real that experience is not everything.

"Comparing players with Ronaldo and Messi is something you can't do", he said. "Nobody expected us to be here but we are here because we are Liverpool". This club has it in its DNA that it can really go for the big things.

Putting the rumors to rest, Liverpool physiotherapist Ruben has said Salah will break the fast to be in the best condition possible. "It has been a hard path and now we need to finish the job", said Real skipper Sergio Ramos.
