Klopp hails Real Madrid; plots upset in UCL final

Liverpool

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane tore Manchester City to shreds in the quarterfinals, as Liverpool progressed 5-1 winners on aggregate and the trio's exhilarating pace will be a threat for Real Madrid's defense.

The Liverpool manager spoke to the media on Friday ahead of the showpiece final and revealed his admiration for Zinedine Zidane and his superstars, with Real hoping to win a third-straight UCL trophy and a record 13th European title. The games we had in the Champions League, it was the most exceptional run to a final, with the most goals. A win Saturday would see them victors three consecutive years, the first team to do so since Germany's Bayern Munich won the then-called European Cup final from 1974-76. The experience they have is a big advantage.

"Salah is a top player, that's clear". Klopp, however, is concerned only with what Salah can win in Ukraine.

Reports coming out of Madrid would already have you believe that Los Blancos have this one wrapped up, with confidence levels crossing into arrogance.

Real Madrid, who play in Spain's La Liga, are led by Portuguese star Christiano Ronaldo in the attack.

So expect goals and plenty of them in a game that's going to be a lot closer than many observers, both neutral and Madridistas believe.

"We have to make it as hard as possible for them".

Steve Anderson, 50, a veteran of many of Liverpool's previous European Cup successes, including against Madrid in Paris in 1981 when he was just a teenager, said he was still hopeful of getting into the match - but refused to pay hundreds of pounds on the black market.
