Liverpool’s bid for historic treble faces Madrid’s unstoppable magic: Champions League final LIVE
For the second time in five years, Liverpool and Real Madrid will meet in the Champions League final in Paris
The final, which begins at 9 p.m. in Paris (5 a.m. AEST), will draw an estimated 80,000 fans to the Stade de France
Including roughly 20,000 supporters of each team who have secured valuable tickets.
Liverpool will be hoping to win their second Champions League in four seasons after losing 3-1 to Real in Kyiv in 2018
when Mohamed Salah went off injured in the first half and Gareth Bale scored twice for the Spaniards.
The win would cap off a season in which Liverpool won the English League Cup and FA Cup
And ended just a point behind Premier League champions Manchester City.
The Liverpool club can win their seventh European Cup, tying them with AC Milan and leaving only Real Madrid with more victories.
Indeed, Madrid is aiming to win the Champions League for the fifth time in nine seasons
And has triumphed in each of their last seven final appearances.
While Liverpool beat Inter Milan, Benfica, and Villarreal in the final rounds, Carlo Ancelotti's Real beat PSG, Chelsea, and then Manchester City.
