Real Madrid, Liverpool clash for ultimate club title

Real Madrid, Liverpool clash for ultimate club title

Liverpool and Real Madrid will face off in the Champions League final in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday.

The 2018 UEFA Champions League Final soccer game has arrived as Real Madrid takes on Liverpool to wrap up the European Cup ahead of the World Cup.

The Spanish giants are targeting their fourth Champions League title in five years and their third in a row in the game, which kicks off at 1845 GMT.

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.

But Murphy believes Tottenham's 3-1 group stage win over Real back in November proves the Reds needn't worry about their lack of experience compared to Zinedine Zidane's side. This club has it in its DNA that it can really go for the big things.

"It's not important in the moment, no manager is interested in that. He's shown that this year and he's got a great chance to show that over the next few years as Ronaldo and Messi have done, but the day after tomorrow!" "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". 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.

Egyptian star footballer Mohamed Salah who represents Liverpool is a devout Muslim and is reported to have observed Ramadan until this weekend.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo could win his fifth Champions League, a landmark reached by only four players before now.

Liverpool are seeking a sixth European title but none of Klopp's squad has played in a Champions League final.

But Karim Benzema was preferred to Bale, a decision that did not surprise McManaman but says it was good for Liverpool. "It has been a hard path and now we need to finish the job", said Real skipper Sergio Ramos.
