Champions League: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ready for Real Madrid showdown

Spirit of Liverpool can stop Real’s record run, says Klopp

The Madrid side's key striker, Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded alongside Barcelona's Lionel Messi, as one of the greatest players of his generation.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher got caught up in the Champions League final fever in Kiev as he belted out the Mohamed Salah song with a bar full of Reds fans.

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.

They showed Klopp sticking with the same side which lost to Roma in the second leg of their semi-final - playing in the familiar 4-3-3 formation which has been a hit this season.

The game pits Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp against Real's Frenchman Zinedine Zidane in their first fixture against one another. No other team has more Champions League titles than Real Madrid, which has won the Champions League/European Cup 12 times. This club has in its DNA that we can really go for the big things. "Nobody expected us to be here but we are here because we are Liverpool".

"It's not important in the moment, no manager is interested in that".

"If Mo can go there we will see in the next years. This season was exceptional, unbelievable so far".

Salah has scored 44 goals in his first season at the club.

This time, however, they will be depending on their front three consisting of Sadio Mané, Firmino and Salah to get them the goals against Madrid.

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

"I don't believe in paying that kind of money", he said. Both have found the back of the net 11 times during the tournament.

However, the world's most expensive defender says his laid-back style nearly cost his side during their quarter-final second leg against Manchester City, when his early mistake allowed Gabriel Jesus to open the scoring inside two minutes.

The path to Kiev has also been hard for fans, due to the exorbitant cost of flights and hotel rooms.
