Relentless Cristiano Ronaldo can break more Champions League records in final

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits Real Madrid will most likely start Saturday's Champions League final with more confidence. 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.

Cristiano Ronaldo responded to his worst run of domestic form at Real Madrid with a record-smashing scoring streak in the Champions League and in Saturday's final he can join the club's iconic forward Alfredo di Stefano on five European Cup triumphs. "Comparing players with Ronaldo and Messi is something you can't do, they're in another orbit", Ramos said. I knew him, of course; I knew his skills, and tried to anticipate all of his movements.

Zidane, meanwhile, is on the brink of a third straight Champions League win as a coach.

Klopp has the chance to become only the fourth manager in the club's long history to win a European Cup, following in the hallowed footsteps of Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Rafael Benitez.

"We've done fantastically well to get to this point", Henderson said.

In the 1998 Champions League final... we weren't the favourites, we were the challengers.

Liverpool are good enough to win this final, but the best teams don't always win the big cup finals, so Klopp and his players have to do all they can to make their own luck as they prepare for a night that will define their careers.

The question of whether devout Muslim Salah has chosen to fast in the build-up to the encounter with Real Madrid in Kiev has attracted a lot of media interest.

"Do all the things you want in a football game because it is only a football game, a big one for sure, but only a football game".

Egyptian worldwide Salah has arguably been the stand-out performer across Europe this season, leading a reshaped Liverpool front-line after the exit of Coutinho in January. As I said to my team-mates, "We all play in the same and competition and we need to be one".

"I know how I lost the finals, it didn't change my life", said Klopp, a two-time Bundesliga champion with Dortmund.

My memories of the 1988 FA Cup final against Wimbledon are painful reminder of how things can go horribly wrong when you least expect it, with the sands of time only slightly dulling my pain after that frightful defeat.

The two have taken different paths in the game, having come from very different backgrounds. "We must wait and see how the game begins, but I believe it will be a great spectacle for those who love football".

Even the normally level headed Tony Kroos appears to be getting caught up in the Madrid hype, blithely saying: "It is a great achievement for Liverpool to reach a final and to have a chance to win the Champions League".
