LIVERPOOL

v

REAL MADRID

Saturday 26th May

7.45pm

 

Join us for the biggest match in club football at Paddock

 

Both Real Madrid and Liverpool have overcome tough opponents on their route to this match in Kiev, and will be fired up to end the season on a high with the biggest trophy in club football. Liverpool are the first English club in 6 years to reach the final in the competition, with their first appearance at this stage since their forgettable final defeat to AC Milan in 2007. They'll be looking to repeat the heroics from two years earlier, when they memorably overturned a 0-3 half time scoreline to beat the Italians.

  

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are just 90 minutes away from winning the biggest competition in Europe once more, though it will not be easy against a Real Madrid side that have been rampant in their pursuit for an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League title. If anyone can defy the odds it's this Liverpool side, with a frontline firing on all cyclinders, and a defence that's starting to find its feet at last. 

  

One thing they will be hoping is that Premier League Golden Boot winner Mo Salah will fire them to glory and prove that he belongs on the big stage alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be looking to land his fifth career Champions League Final win and eclipse Lionel Messi's four trophies with Barcelona.
