Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the 2018 Uefa Champions League final on May 26.
The Merseyside club, who have won the European Cup five times, beat AS Roma in the semi-finals to advance to a showpiece clash against holders Real Madrid.
Real edged past Bayern Munich in the semis, are hunting a hat-trick of Champions League triumphs after winning the competition in both 2016 and 2017.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is out for the season, but Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp has no players suspended for the final.
Likewise, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has no suspensions to worry about.
Liverpool likely starting XI:
Karius; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Real Madrid likely starting XI:
Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Kroos, Modric, Casemiro; Vasquez, Ronaldo, Benzema
The champions league final is serious business and those Liverpool players will feel that in what promises to be a mouth-watering clash in Kiev.
Real Madrid are clear favorites but it would be ridiculous to underestimate Jurgen Klopp’s troops.
In the final third, they can destroy any defense, as seen many times this season- Salah will need to deliver what he has done consistently in the Premier League this season- Goals.
However, the Reds are terrible in defending and where i feel they will have problems against Ronaldo and friends.
Real Madrid 1 – 0 Liverpool
