Tomorrow, Real Madrid will be aiming for a third straight Champions League triumph, but will have to overcome the competition’s top scorers with 46 goals, Liverpool.
However, Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool team have no reason to fear Real Madrid with their irrepressible front three capable of inflicting serious damage on the holders. If the Reds can muster the same defensive fortitude that served them so well over two legs against Manchester City in the quarter finals, they might just crown this remarkable campaign with a sixth European Cup.
Speaking ahead of the final, the Liverpool boss said: “There are many reasons why we are where we are right now, and I’m immensely proud of what the boys have achieved. We aren’t anyone else. We are Liverpool, on the way to becoming a really good team, and performing at such a high level is very cool. It’s been a crazy ride but, after all, we’ve earned our place here.”
In Kenya, the final is being broadcast on SuperSport (Channels SuperSport 3 Live, SuperSport 10 Live and SuperSport Blitz) with programmes beginning at 7.30pm.
