Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday evening.
Jurgen Klopp’s side missed out on the title on a dramatic final day of the Premier League season, but Liverpool have already lifted the Carabao Cup and FA Cup this season and are looking to make it a hat-trick of silverware.
Liverpool will be desperate to avenge their defeat against Madrid in the 2018 final, when Mohamed Salah was forced off with injury before Gareth Bale scored a spectacular bicycle kick, but they may have to make do without Thiago Alcantara who picked up an Achilles problem last weekend.
Real Madrid have produced mesmerising comebacks against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City to reach the final, owing largely to the brilliance of Karim Benzema, and have been able to focus all their concentration on Saturday night after wrapping up the La Liga title over three weeks ago.
When and where is it?
The match will begin at 8pm on Saturday 28 May at the Stade de France in Paris.

Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho but Klopp said in his pre-match press conference that both players are “ready” to go. Divock Origi has been ruled out.
Real Madrid are expected to have David Alaba back from injury, with Carlo Ancelotti claiming to have a full squad available.
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Salah, Mane, Diaz
Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius
Real Madrid and Liverpool. Liverpool and Real Madrid. These two clubs fighting for the Champions League title when the light shines the brightest. This is what European football is supposed to be.
The two teams have endured very different paths on their way to this Final. Real Madrid beat all odds in a year which was supposed to be a transition season and knocked out Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City, all of them through thrilling comebacks fueled by the magic at the Santiago Bernabeu.
On the other hand, Liverpool have been contenders all season long, fighting for the Premier League title against Manchester City. However, their road in the Champions League has been much more manageable, as they faced Benfica, Inter Milan and Villarreal to clinch their presence in the Final.
It’s possibly safe and fair to say that Liverpool are the favorites to beat Real Madrid, but being underdogs is quite familiar for Ancelotti’s men, at least this season.
