Champions League Final
Liverpool, UK - May 26, 2018
The Champions League final is set to take place on Saturday (May 26) in Ukraine’s capital Kiev.
Real Madrid are looking to win their fourth Champions League final in five years while Liverpool are in their first final in the competition since 2007.
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has warned Liverpool that his side are as hungry as ever to win the match, rejecting claims that the Spanish giants might have lost their edge ahead of Saturday’s final.
There have been some suggestions that Real, having won the past two finals, might not be as motivated as Liverpool, with the English club not having tasted European glory since 2005.
Much of the focus of the match will be on the star men, Real Madrid’s talisman Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool’s Egyptian Striker Mohamed Salah, both payers looking to win the coveted Ballon d’Or, awarded to the world’s best player.
