Three key Champions League final duels

Zidane was a Champions League and World Cup winner as a player

John Toshack says he is hoping Liverpool will lift the Champions League title on Saturday despite thinking Real Madrid will win in Kiev. The Egypt global has one more chance to catch Rush against Real Madrid in Kiev on Saturday when Liverpool aim to win the European Cup for a sixth time.

Liverpool will participate in their first Champions League final in over a decade on Saturday, despite Klopp having limited options available throughout parts of the 2017-18 season due to numerous injuries and the sale of Philippe Coutinho in January.

"I'm pretty sure that in the second before the game Real Madrid will be more confident than we are, but that's not a problem because the game doesn't end in that second, it only starts", said Klopp.

"They've won it before, but it's one game, not two, so we just need to focus and not think about anything in the past", he said in an interview for UEFA's website.

While I remain on Lionel Messi's side in the debate over which of these two great players are the best of this generation, Ronaldo's achievements at United and Real Madrid are just incredible and any time you feel like he is on the wane, he comes up with a performance to remind you how great he is.

What time does Champions League final start?

While Zidane was a Champions League and World Cup victor as a player, Klopp's own playing career in his native Germany was modest.

Mohamed Salah troubled Marcelo when they met in Real Madrid's win over Roma in 2016.

Tesla rejected eye-tracking technology for Autopilot because it is ineffective: Musk
Tesla said it had not yet received vehicle data and did not yet know the facts, including whether Autopilot was engaged. Police said on Monday that the driver, who suffered a broken ankle, said she had been using Autopilot before the crash.

"If Mo can go there we will see in the next years".

It will be the third final Klopp has guided the club to since arriving in October 2015, and Werner is no doubt that German manager has been the catalyst for Liverpool's considerable improvement in recent years.

"Unfortunately, I have to accept that he is as brilliant as he was as a player".

Described as a cross between a goalscoring number nine and creative number 10 by Brazil coach Tite, Liverpool will hope Firmino's movement can drag another Madrid Champions League specialist in Ramos out of position.

"With Virgil, it was very clear that he wanted to come to play for Liverpool".

"Any player who arrived at this club they want to play in these games, they want to be under this kind of pressure, they want to get trophies".

"The road to Kiev has been fantastic and what's exciting about this is that I think we deserve to be in the final".

Juve were the favourites and we knew that we needed to upgrade our level to go against them and win. "We want to win the trophy for fans and the club and we're certainly going in the right direction". "We must wait and see how the game begins, but I believe it will be a great spectacle for those who love football". You saw it with Pep Guardiola who started at La Masia, then took on Barcelona and succeeded. Real Madrid is seeking a record-extending 13th European club title.
