Real Madrid, under the leadership of Zinedine Zidane, in the third time in a row has got into the Champions League final and the Spanish grandee has won the previous two finals. In Kiev Real will play against Liverpool which has sensationally reached the tournament final stage.
The modern Real is Cristiano Ronaldo and the others as it was the Portuguese who has pulled the Royal club into the decisive match of the Champions League, having scored 15 goals and 2 assists for the whole tournament. A lot has been done on the football field by Marcelo. As the left guard he has scored 3 goals and 2 assists. On the way to the final Real has won over PSG (3:1, 2:1), Juventus (3:0, 3:1) and Bayern (2:1, 2:2), having demonstrated its experience and ability to adapt to the strong sides of the rivals. Now Zinedine Zidane’s team has unique chance to win the third trophy of the Champions League in a row and the 13th trophy (bearing in mind European Champion Clubs’ Cup).
Brilliant team of Jurgen Klopp impressed the fans throughout the whole tournament with the power of the attack. The way the team was moving from defense to the attacking actions and good tactical training. For Liverpool it is the 8th Champions League final (bearing in mind European Champion Clubs’ Cup) in which the English club can win the 6th trophy (the last victory in 2005, in a legendary battle against Milan (3:3)), and in 2007 Liverpool has lost the final to Milan (1:2).
Unlike Real where everything is held in place by Ronaldo’s shoulders, Liverpool in the Champions League differs by the excellent team work. Salah, Mané and Firmino who have for three scored 29 goals and 14 assists for the whole tournament are equally dangerous near the gate of the rivals. Liverpool doesn’t have a lot of squad losses before the final – Matip and Oxlade-Chamberlain whereas the rival doesn’t have any injured players.
