Liverpool will be 'on fire' against Madrid in final-Klopp

You could win the title for the third time in a row.

Here, Press Association Sport assesses the two teams. Inside 10 minutes, Real led again, Karim Benzema restoring the reigning champion's advantage.

LAST time, it was a late penalty. But it was also credit to Benzema, whose weaving run led to Isco's decisive goal against Atletico Madrid in the semis past year and who scored the victor in 2014, also in the semis, also against Bayern, in a 1-0 win in the first leg. France may be wondering what they will be missing at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. I'm back on the bench in a Champions League game, and I think that's a good thing, "he said as Bayern retired 4-3 on aggregate".

Real have the current Ballon d'or victor.

Despite all this restrictions on the Liverpool support, Murphy has no doubt fans will flock to Kiev - with perhaps 50,000 making the trip to Eastern Europe on May 26.

The Real defence looked pretty shaken despite the presence of the likes of Sergio Ramos and Rafael Varane.

Bale's new deal at the club, signed 18 months ago, has four years to run and is the equivalent of £600,000-a-week before tax in the Premiership, which would also be an obstacle on him returning. Yet Mohamed Salah has already exceeded that tally. Liverpool won the first leg 5-2 at home."It was a insane match", Zidane said."We struggled in the beginning, conceding early and not being able to play our game".

If he can outshine Ronaldo in Kiev, the ultimate individual prize may be next.

Klopp's swashbuckling Reds also broke the all-time record for goals in a single Champions League season, with one game still to play in the competition.

Heynckes, 72, retires in Europe after the

"Words can not describe how disappointed I am".

"We have the tools to win the final".

This team is more pragmatic.

The former Reds midfielder responded: "Will it heck!"

Liverpool will pin their hopes on that trio and their harassing style.

The club have famously won the trophy on five of those occasions - two more than any other domestic rival. From a man who helped the team to three European Cups as a player, those words carry a little more weight.

When Carlo Ancelotti was sacked last October, Heynckes returned to Bayern after four years of retirement since leading Bayern to the triple of the Champions League, the Bundesliga and the German Cup in 2013.

But the 50-year-old said beating holders Real in Kiev would be the ideal way to end his personal cup final drought.
